Quail Trails Village, Paradise, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here for two nights for a wedding in Chico. It's convenient, and COULD be nice, but it's old, ill designed, and badly maintained. Sites are radically unlevel, requiring stands and full extensions on three of my four corner jackstands. Electrical outlet was very loose and located immediately under the water spigot. It's a shame really. The location is lovely, and the treed-covered sites, if leveled, are staircased up a hill. As it is, it's really pretty terrible, and the only thing that made it worthwhile was that this was only used for sleeping. The location is used primarily by long term renters. We camped at Quail Trails Village in a Travel Trailer.

Millersylvania State Park, Olympia, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a jewel. We didn't spend that much time here, since we were visiting friends nearby. However, we did walk around, and enjoyed the mornings here. The rv/hookups area is newer and a little separate from but contiguous with the tent camping areas. All of it is amidst the towering conifers and rich temperate rainforest that is Washington. Love this place and want to go back. It's water and electric - no serwer, so keep that in mind. We camped at Millersylvania State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Valley of the Rogue State Park, Gold Hill, Oregon

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

We've stayed here several times over the years. It's lovely, even though just off the freeway. Extremely treed, very big and spacious. Lovely walking trails. On the Rogue River. Ready access to Grants Pass and Ashland and wineries. We don't hear the freeway in our travel trailer. We love how chill the place is.

Anthony Chabot Regional Park, Oakland, California

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

This is an urban jewel. I lived in the Bay Area for 30 years and didn't know this existed. It's a gorgeous East Bay Regional Park campground. It's splendid. Close to perfect. Now I'm going to mention some cautionary things, because there are some aspects that a prospective camper needs to know. • The gate is closed two miles from the campground at 10pm. After that, you CANNOT get in. Period. Plus, they can (and did while were there) shut it at 9:25pm. How whimsical! They denied even the possibility when we told them about it the next day. • The campground is a 25-minute drive on an extremely narrow and winding road from the freeway. Given Bay Area traffic, if you're out enjoying the area or visiting friends, you need to leave extra time to aim for being back safely to get into the campground. • It's California. There is poison oak everywhere. • Guests must pay for their car to visit. • If you're thinking about a big rig of any kind, let me know, 'because I want to watch. The road end is tight turns and narrow lanes. My 25' travel trailer was in the other lane. And in the campground, there are three-foot diameter Eucalyptus trees immediate next to the very narrow single "lane" road and tight turns. Like I said, I want to watch. The remove from civilization provides something of a barrier to "bad actors" who might think to go back there, but it's a lot of work to get back there, and bad actors are usually lazy. Still, I'd go back, but I'd plan on more time at the campground and less time travelling around the Bay Area. We camped at Anthony Chabot Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clio's Rivers Edge RV Park, Clio, California

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Initially stopped here for an overnight before going into the forest to camp, but we ended up staying here for a five nights. Do please keep in mind that we visited in September, and the place was mostly empty at the end of the season. This would have a completely different, busy, noisy, and active character in-season -- one that we wouldn't have cared for. As it was, it IS beautiful, filled with huge, old-growth pine trees next to the river. The campground grounds are largely white gravel, which is pretty and comfortable to walk on barefoot. All of the sites are full hookup, and well designed and comfortable in size, though not demarcated one from the other. Our visit found the park lightly populated and wonderfully quiet. It was relaxing and even had OK cell service. We had some problems with wifi, but didn't bother to take it up with the very pleasant managers. We would go back here, but only early or late season. We camped at Clio's Rivers Edge RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beaver Creek Campground USFS, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here for three nights staging for a day trip to Idaho for the eclipse. First time here. An instant favorite. It's well off the road, and just the other side of the top of the hill. Great view over the Madison River below the Lake Hebgen Dam and above Quake Lake. It has a variety of typical Forest Service sites, ranging from cozy and treed to open and sunny. All of them are lovely. WE stayed in the furthest loop from the entrance. Love this place so much, we came back for a couple of more visits. We camped at Beaver Creek Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Jim & Mary's RV Park, Missoula, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

For this four-night visit to Missoula, we decided to try someplace new and stay here at Jim and Mary's in our 25' travel trailer. The park is lovely, with many large trees and well kept with lovely large, tended flower beds, and asphalt interior roads. The park has the appearance more of a state or national park with the generous spacing between campsites. Very convenient to Missoula.

The park has been around a long time, with the region growing around it, resulting in one of the negatives for this park. The park is not far from I-90 off the exit for the primary route to Kalispell, Flathead Lake, and Glacier National Park. Convenient, yes, but it's also the source of significant traffic noise. Similarly, the campground is only a couple of hundred yards from a tight curve of the major national railway, with every train squealing around that curve, and some trains finding a need for horns in the middle of the night. Neither of these issues are the fault of the park, but they are a reality for the visitors. For me, a light sleeper, these were issues; for my wife, a deep sleeper, they weren't an issue at all.

One of my issues with most parks is the lack of interest in providing decent WiFi - yes, they have it, but no, it's not really usable. Jim and Mary's RV Park is still using wireless G, the standard of a decade ago. They have a policy disallowing streaming. They have no plans to upgrade.

This speaks to a blind spot in their customer service. While we were there, the WiFi suddenly stopped working. However, since we were out all day, we always got back after office hours, which are 8am to 6pm, when most people are out visiting the area. So were weren't told that the password had changed. I was directly told by the manager that she wanted to tell everyone directly of the change so she could see who was using the service. Customer service mean "about the customer" not about anything else.

So mostly this place is great, but with notable deficiencies. We camped at Jim & Mary's RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Many Pines, Neihart, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great National Forest Service (NFS) campground in the Lewis and Clark forest in the Belt Mountains at about 7500' elevation. The campground has sites for medium to large travel trailers and fifth wheels, and although the interior road isn't super wide, it's easily navigated. It's a more rudimentary NFS campground with only a concrete vault toilet (didn't use) and a hand pump water source (unthreaded), and the water was a bit cloudy. The campground does have a host.

We stayed here Memorial weekend, which saw a big storm come through and drop a few inches of snow at about 500' higher than this campground and rained heavily while we were here. We still got out and hiked the very nice trails in the beautiful forest around the campground. The forest has small diameter pines with a green forest floor, but few bushes, giving a wonderful green room effect. There is a sweet stream that runs through the area which separates the campground from the road. We camped at Many Pines in a Travel Trailer.

Red Cliff Campground - Gallatin National Forest, Big Sky, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Red Cliff National Forest Campground is one of our nearby, "go to" weekend campgrounds. They have a loop of electric hookup sites most of which are reservable (recreation.gov), but with a generous number of "walk up" sites available.

The campground is on the Gallatin River, which separates from the campground from Highway 191. There are two loops, one with electric-served sites, and another for standard sites. The electric sites are in a lightly forested area, with the regular sites looping around an open, grassy space. The latter loop was completely redone by the Forest Service last year, and is beautiful, with large, mostly back-in sites. There is water available for RVs, but no dump. All the sites have fire rings and robust, fixed-in-place picnic table. Site separation is superb. Most sites are very level.

Big Sky is about 10 miles away, and there is a pleasant rustic restaurant/bar about a mile away (great pie!).

One of our faves, and an example of why the Forest Service should be better funded so this caliber campground could be available more commonly. We camped at Red Cliff Campground - Gallatin National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Very beautiful and spacious. Stayed here in a 25' travel trailer with slideout. Even though it's convenient to the freeway and town, there is no noise or sense of being near urban. You DO pay steeply for this however. We camped at Billings KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

First, it's wonderful to have full service RV hookups in a national park, and especially one as beautiful as Teton. There are limitations: there is no wifi (sit outside a building for poor service), marginal mobile coverage, notably unlevel campsites. However, you're a 5 minute walk from the lake, restaurants and a marina and visitor center nearby, the campground is forested. And the reservation and on-site staff are extremely helpful. Make sure to have the breakfast buffet (or bunch on weekends) at the Jackson Lodge about five minutes up the road.

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

A very popular campground with good reason: friendly staff, nice facilities, spacious campsites, lots and lots of trees, amazing views, and in the middle of an amazingly beautiful area. Wifi is just functional. Food was decent, not great, and a little pricey, but one has to note that the only real other option is to drive into West Yellowstone where the options are chancey and pricer. This meets the defition of resort insofar as one can come here and stay and have much to do in the area. We camped at Yellowstone Park / West Gate KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground, Virgin, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

It's the nicest RV park around, and it turned out to be a great choice. The pictures on their website give a good feel for the place: nice shade trees, your choice of green lawn or crushed granite sites, and great views. Friendly staff, very nice facilities. It's a nice, 12 minute drive to the park, and one appreciates very quickly being out of the press of people in the park or in Springdale, yet easy access to everything in both directions. The pool and spa are both well maintained and relaxing. Though it's just off the highway, the the vehicle noise is minimal, and I'm a very light sleeper. The resort is far more worthy of the title than almost every other campground I've stayed in that used the term. People were quiet there, everything is maintained well, and they have little niceties like useful, but not bright lights on the power stanchion at each site. When we were here, by far, most of the sites were filled with extremely nice coaches. The only negative I give the place is the Wi-Fi, and it's the only reason I didn't give the palce a 10. It's available throughout the park, but when we were here, it was wireless-G and provided only 11 mbps; useable, but barely. They said they were getting new equipment, but the person I spoke to was not tech and had no specifics. At the price for the park, they should have had N a couple of years ago. There is a cell tower in sight, but it's not Verizon, because the best I had was barely one bar on a Droid X2, and to have a long conversation without dropout, I had to sit on top of the trailer. Springdale (near the park) has very good 3G, so you can get good data link nearby. So if you need connectivity, consider this info, otherwise, I love this place. Good Sam Discount. We camped at Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
