They have had to remove the majority of trees due to pine beetles. This also improves the view of the marshes, and we saw 3 moose while here. The roads were in bad shape, but the sites were level. There was no host and the bathrooms were not as clean as they could be. Close to many hiking trails and the Moose Visitor Center.

Date of Stay:

One of the best campgrounds we stayed in the last 6 months. Nicely spaced, paved sites in pines. Very clean grounds and facilities (laundry available too). Many hiking trails along Spring Creek, Williamson River and to the Logging Museum. About 45 minutes to Crater Lake National Park or to Klamath Falls for provisions. Hosts were wonderful at providing information and had wheelbarrows full of firewood for $4.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park with clean facilities near Oregon Dunes. Close to Florence, which has a nice riverfront with great restaurants. Also close to Heceta Head Lighthouse and Sea Lion Caves.

Date of Stay:

The weather was terrible, so we didn't get to see much of the park. It was close to the dunes and beach. The showers were not in the best shape.

Date of Stay:

We used the full hook-ups available in center of campground, but there are also primitive sites on the water that are less expensive. Many hunters use the camp as their base, but all was quiet. Close to Raymond for provisions.

Date of Stay:

Sites were very private and close to trails on bluffs overlooking Strait of Juan de Fuca where we saw whales and sea lions. Only a few sites with good sun exposure (for solar panels). Trails to Dungeness Spit and close to Olympic National Park (Hurricane Ridge) and the Olympic Discovery bike trail. All services available in Sequim and Port Angeles.

     

Thomas Canyon

Wells, Nevada

Date of Stay:

We only stayed one night because they had turned the water off the week before, so we were not able to hike or enjoy the canyon.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful coastal campground, but not well maintained (bathrooms not cleaned regularly and site reservation signs unreadable). It is about 40 miles to Forks and further to Aberdeen for supplies. Good access to numerous beaches up and down coast.

Date of Stay:

Very shady sites with trails to a nice beach on banks of Pend Oreille. Camp staff were very helpful and kept everything in great shape. There were a lot of kids because of the beach, so could be noisy, but everything calmed down at night and the gates were locked. Close to Sandpoint and good base to explore the Idaho panhandle.

Date of Stay:

This is the nicest overall campground we have stayed in. Had very clean facilities and beautifully landscaped grounds. There is some road and train noise, but a wonderful place. The price reflects a Good Sam discount.

Date of Stay:

The rate reflects 50% discount for "America the Beautiful Pass" (now the Interagency Pass) which is a great deal for a full hookup. There are multiple campgrounds, but the one that offers this deal is the first on the left as you go over the dam: there is a big sign saying "RV PARK." It is next to the Lewis and Clark exhibition and only 18 miles from Dillon. It's a good base for the Pintler Scenic Highway. It can get very windy here. The views of the mountains and lake are unlimited.

Date of Stay:

Very beautiful on shores of Georgetown Lake with boating access, swimming and lots of wildlife. Host keeps clean vault toilets and there is plenty of free firewood from the thinning of the forest due to pine beetles. Still left plenty of shade.

Date of Stay:

Family run business with cabins, RV sites & primitive sites. Very convenient to Glacier (20 miles to west entrance), but also across from railroad tracks (as are a lot of the campgrounds along Rt.2), but you get used to the trains or can close up to decrease noise. Great value for full hook-ups, but no cell service or internet, so plan to get away from it all. Nice cafe with good food. Close to hike to Stanton Lake. Only downside was that the restrooms ran out of paper often and were not as clean as they could be. But again, with the full hook-up, it is easy to use your own facilities. We would stay there again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Nicely spaced sites, friendly staff, very clean. Excellent wildlife viewing, nature trail. WiFi is only 20 minutes per day unless purchasing more, then we were shorted a day with no way to contact provider. Leash rules are not enforced. The boat ramp next to the campground was very noisy (motor powered boat wash), and started at 5-7am even though quiet hours supposed to go til 7am. No help from staff to stop the noise. The laundry and a great cafe are located 2 miles away: awesome, huge sourdough pancakes.

     

Parkside

Red Lodge, Montana

Date of Stay:

Excellent host and the cleanest vault toilets I've seen in awhile. Great wildlife: moose and deer. Sites were along a creek. Great hiking. It's not far from Red Lodge and at the base of the Beartooth Highway.
