Marion Campground & RV Park, Marion, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

There are some larger sites for people staying more than a night or two. Over nighters are pretty close but ok. The park has lots of beautiful trees and shade. There is a very nice playground and dog walk area. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cottonwood Camping RV Park & Campground, Bonner Springs, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is mostly extended stay people. Looks a little junky. Nice slabs not very neat around site. Water hook up was not up to my standards. Sewer was ok and located well. Good for an overnight stay. Close to interstate. A bit pricy for what you have. But what used to be a $25 campground is now $35 I guess. We camped at Cottonwood Camping RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Casper East RV Park, Casper, Wyoming

This campground is located in the middle of an industrial park. It is noisy. Trains and traffic noise are quite loud. This park is ok for an overnight stop with hook ups. Better than the Walmart but just as noisy. We camped at Casper East RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Perrys RV Park and Tent Campground, Red Lodge, Montana

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

This is a very nice park and well maintained. There are sights near Rock Creek and some up near the highway. Owners are super nice folks. We had to stay for 3 days waiting for a part for our hitch. They made sure room was made for us even though we didn't have a reservation beforehand. We camped at Perrys RV Park and Tent Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Red Lodge is a neat little tourist town with the usual shops and restaurants. The drive over Beartooth Pass is spectacular. Rent a motorcycle in town and do it on a Harley. The Town Pump gas station by the round a bout has a dump station for those who make a purchase.

Ruby Valley Campground and RV Park (formerly Virginia City KOA), Alder, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This park had previously been a KOA. New owners are making improvements but it leaves much to be desired. We were crammed into a site so small my pick up door opened into the neighbors patio area. There was a large tree along side the site that I was barely able to get on the site because of it. There may be a site or two that are better but I didn't see it. All seemed very small and very tight. I have never been this close anywhere before. The owners were nice and helped me get parked on this tight site.

Countryside RV Park, LLC, Dillon, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice park. Very well maintained. There are very large open grass areas where you are allowed to let your dog run off leash. There is a laundry with two washers and two dryers in good working order. Sites are spacious though fairly close. Roads and pads are gravel. Each site has a nice grassy area. We camped at Countryside RV Park, LLC in a Travel Trailer.

This park is centrally located to many attractions. Bannock State Park, a ghost town as it was in the day. There is a scenic byway. a crystal park where you can dig crystals, Nevada City and Virginia City are within 50 miles. The small town of Dillon has a very interesting little museum of local history. Be sure to check out Sparky's Garage for delicious burgers and bbq. The decor is pretty neat too.

Mountain View RV Park, Arco, Idaho

This is a very well maintained campground. Things are very neat and clean. My wife used the laundry which was clean also. The washers and dryers worked well. Most of the sites appear to be pull through sites. We had full hook ups. My wife thought the owner was a bit gruff but he runs a tight ship. He likes to keep the place looking nice.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a well maintained park with camping cabins, tenting, pull through and back in RV sites. They have a dog walk area, pool, dump station, laundry, propane and a nice office store. Our back in site was one of the tightest we have been in. My slide out was nearly touching my neighbor's awning. The utilities were good and located well. It is a good overnight place or to stay for a few days if you are visiting this area. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our favorite campground anywhere we have ever been. It might not be for everyone but for us it is what camping is all about. This location is huge. You are out in a setting frequented by wildlife. A bull moose and a cow moose passed behind our site several times. We had a mule deer buck pass by each day. We spotted many varieties of birds also. There is a loop with electric hook ups. You have to fill your water tank by the entrance. Most sites are dry sites. We stayed a week. We used a tote for waste water and filled 6 gallon jugs to fill our water tank when needed. That is no big deal for me to be in this type of setting. If you like KOA you probably won't like this place. There are plenty of places to walk and enjoy the silence of nature. The Gros Ventre River passed along the backside of the campground. There you will find quiet places to sit and reflect. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

We have been to this campground 3 times. If you like a natural setting over convenience then you will probably like this place. One area is mostly for tents and small RVs as the sites are small. One loop is only tents. In the electric loop and the tenting areas you cannot use a generator. They do have an area where you can use a generator. This campground seldom fills so it is a good bet if everything else has filled in the area.

Laramie KOA, Laramie, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a typical KOA. Cramped narrow sites. My neighbors are sitting next to my sewer hook up. This isn't camping. They have a dog park, one reason we stop at these places. Here they had no bags for waste. They had a shovel and rake leaning against the fence for users to pick up after their dog. Consequently, the dog park was full of dog feces. Also dog feces was in the road and along fence lines. That is disgusting. We clean up after our dogs. The utilities were top notch. I have no complaints there. This is little more than a high priced parking lot. Who uses game rooms etc when you can't roast a hotdog at your site? We camped at Laramie KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very well maintained and managed. Attendant takes you to your site and assists in parking you. Sites are close but everything is top notch. It is near the interstate for convenience. Highway noise was not a problem for me. It does quiet down later. This park is located near a Walmart, restaurants and service stations. A good stop for overnight or longer if visiting the area.

Riverview Marina SRA, Nebraska City, Nebraska

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is right on the Missouri River. It could be a very nice park but it is poorly maintained. It has 16 electric-only sites; the rest are just grass sites. The park host does nothing to care for the place. We arrived a day after a storm and we had to remove large limbs that had blown down on the site we chose. There is a boat launch that is active during daylight hours. Quiet at night. This place is a weekend party site judging by contents of fire rings--beer cans, liquor bottles etc. Non electric sites are $12; electric sites are $19. It is an OK place to spend the night as long as it is not a weekend or stormy. There are very large cottonwood trees over most of the electric sites. I would not trust them in a blow. We camped at Riverview Marina SRA in a Travel Trailer.

Hermann City Park Campground, Hermann, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice city park located on a large parcel of land. Huge grass areas for kids and dogs. Playground and sports fields. The sites are paved but close. Some are shaded. Utilities were in good working order except I was not happy with the sewer cover. People with kids need to be wary of full hookup sites. You don't know what the last guy spilled around the sewer connection. This one just had a rock covering it up. Tempting to kids to fiddle with. Should have a cap. This little village has much to see and do. Wineries are the main attraction. The full hook up area of the park was filled on the weekend. We made reservations for the weekend ahead of time. Price for full hookup was $30. Site was marked with our name and reservation dates. My only negative was the group parked behind us. While we were backing in they shouted that they hoped we like to party till 4:00am which they did. There is no staff on site to enforce any quiet time if there is one. Nothing on the website indicated there was. The rest of the folks in here seemed to quiet shortly after dark. Some people are just rude. The site next to them was empty when we got here. It was reserved for two days. They probably left due to the noisy neighbors the night before. Other than there is no host or staff to watch over things, this is a nice place to stay while visiting Hermann. We camped at Hermann City Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Memphis KOA , Marion, Arkansas

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

This is a very nice park close to all there is to do in and around Memphis. Customer service was excellent. We enjoyed the breakfast you could buy at their cafe. It was reasonably priced and quite good. Our site was level with a gravel pad. Utilities were good. I would have rated this park much higher but for the noise of the interstate. Truck traffic was deafening. We had eat plugs so we slept ok. But eat plugs and enjoy all the tours and special activities this KOA provides. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Travel Trailer.
