Shady Acres RV Park & Campground, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped for one night, on our way south. The price seemed high but was the going rate for this middle-of-no-where town in the desert. On the bright side, its easy to find and easy to get in/out of the park. The check in was quick and they give you a slip of paper that gets you three cents off (per gallon) at the fuel station next door. On the negative side, some of the turns, going thru the park, are tight and the placement of trees, both old and new, made it difficult to get around without dragging something along the side of the motor home. Also, because its in the desert, the park is mostly loose dirt and very dusty. I wouldn't have stayed more than one night. We camped at Shady Acres RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Golden Spike RV Park, Brigham City, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Cute little park, designed for those 'just passing thru'. Easy access from the Interstate and easy in/out of the park. All sites appear to be pull-thru. Staff was welcoming and cheerful. If you stop, in the late summer, you'll find zucchini, yellow squash and a variety of heirloom tomatoes waiting for you at the check in counter (fresh from their side garden). "Take what you want!" When I checked out, the next morning, there was a fresh batch waiting to be claimed. What a treat! We camped at Golden Spike RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mt Hood Village RV Resort, Welches, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Since this is part of our Thousand Trails membership, we stayed at this Encore Park for no charge. Normal retail is $60. Check in is super easy & friendly and the park is massive, with sites for RVs, tents, and rentals of Yurts, Tiny Houses and cabins. Most of the older park is heavily shaded so the new Beaver Valley section is a welcome addition for those looking for satellite signal. This is a full service, gated resort, with indoor and outdoor pools, a large lodge, two fitness rooms, modern laundry, small fully stocked store and cafe on site. There are several paths leading down to the Salmon River and one path leading up to the Cascade Streamwatch, in the Wildwood Recreation Site (don't miss the Fish Viewing Center!). We camped at Mt Hood Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Welches is a very small town with a local Thriftway grocery store, liquor store and one gas station. There are a few restaurants and pubs, featuring "resort pricing" for most everything. The town of Sandy is only about 15 minutes away, with everything you could need. There are LOTS of hiking trails and its a short drive to Trillium Lake (stunning views of Mt. Hood) and Timberline Lodge, the iconic National Historic Site made famous in The Shinning.

Fort Worden State Park (Beach campground), Port Townsend, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

If you love long walks on the beach, lighthouses and views of the water, this park is perfect! The RV park is located on the Straight of Juan deFuco and has beaches on two sides. The sites are extra large, with ample parking, most of the pull thru sites are situated so you have privacy on your front door and patio area. It's easy to navigate and check in can be done after you park. This is one of Washington's most popular state parks so expect to make reservations months in advance to avoid disappointment. There are two campgrounds at Ft. Wordon, one is up on the hill (no view of the water but close to all the action in the Conference Center) the other is down on the beach. You must enter the Conference Center Grounds, via Cherry Street, to get to either one. Registration is in the Conference Center (follow the signs). We camped at Fort Worden State Park (Beach campground) in a Motorhome.

This park is perfectly located in the seaport town of Port Townsend. During the summer, there are lots of music festivals, a sterling Farmer's Market, and a lot of art's programs. Check out the Marine Science Center, at the Campground. The Bayview Restaurant, near the ferry dock, has the best prices for dinner. Hop the car ferry to Whidbey Island (lots of small towns, lavender farms and wineries to explore).

Hoquiam River RV Park, Hoquiam, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

This is our third visit to Hoquiam River RV Park and each time we return, we are made to feel like family. The managers go out of there way to assure everyone enjoys their visit. On the not-so-great side, the sites are very close together; but on the positive side, you are right on a tidal river and the path, along the water, leads back to a lovely, dark woods with lots of berries for picking. You'll find benches, spaced nicely along the river front, so you can sit, relax and watch for otters at play. The club house is very nice, the laundry and showers are super clean and there are always fresh cookies waiting for you in the office. But, for my money, the best part about the place is the extensive flower pots, brimming with beautiful blooms in every color of the rainbow. A nice touch that reminds you, these folks truly care about their park and want you to feel the same. Note, the $17 rate is for a month (without taxes). We camped at Hoquiam River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Willow Bay Recreation Area, American Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

This has to be one of the finest parks we've ever stayed in! No, there is no pool or hot tub but you are right on the lake and just about every site has a view of the water. The pull thru sites are extra long (enough for your rig, your tow car and a boat!) and the grass, between the sites, is lush. Trees provide just enough shade and quite a few of the sites are aligned so your satellite dish has a clear shot. The staff and owners could not be nicer; they clearly want you to have a good time. There are ball fields, a cafe and an extra wide boat ramp with two docks. Its kayak and SUP board friendly. It's also pet friendly. There is a paved walking path along the water and, if you're lucky, you might see one of the resident moose. Excellent wildlife and lots of birds. The only downside is there is a very active train track running along the back side of the park. If you're rig is closed up, you probably won't hear it. Even still, it didn't keep me from giving this park five stars. We camped at Willow Bay Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Wasatch View Estates and RV Park, Ogden, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This park is easy to get to from the Interstate and interior roads were easy to navigate. This was a very large trailer park, at one point, but appears to be down on its luck these days. Many of the sites were overgrown with weeds and no longer in use. It is, however, convenient and the 50 amp power was clean. And, as the name implies, you have an excellent view of the Wasatch Mountains. We camped at Wasatch View Estates and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Park, Wellington, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This small facility is run by the National 9 Inn, next door. The lady who checked us in was friendly and the price was okay. It appears to cater to contractors working the area. The grass was brown, the concrete pads were broken but it was a pull thru and safe for an overnight. It's better than stopping on the side of the road. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean, well organized park. Staff was friendly and helpful. Easy access from the Interstate and the internal roads were well laid out for large rigs. Pull thru sites were very long.

Tips for other Campers:

There are dozens of wineries nearby (we especially liked Two River's Winery, the wines were very good and the tastings were free). The entrance to Colorado National Monument is within a mile of the park. The Colorado River runs right thru this area and there are multiple places to access the river for kayaking and other water sports. If you like BBQ, drop by Rib City (its only a 1/2 mile away).

4J+1+1 RV Park & Campground, Ouray, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Great location and very friendly staff. You can walk to the entire downtown area, including the hot spring mineral baths from this park. It sits right on the river and wildlife wanders thru on occasion. The pull thru sites are plenty long but they are very close on either side. Your neighbor's hookups are, literally, right beside your picnic table. But, with so much to do, you aren't home for long, its not a big deal. The tent sites were quite nice, roomy and set up for privacy. We camped at 4J+1+1 RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

If you didn't come to Ouray from Silverton, consider making the drive in your tow car. Its got steep roads, hairpin turns and 10-15mph is all you'll want to do...but the views! Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is within an hour's drive, not to be missed. There are two great museums in Montrose (about 30 minutes north of Ouray).

The real draw to this town is the cultural sites: Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenwheep NM, Canyons of the Ancients, several excellent museums and a number of festivals. The town is also the starting/ending point for the San Juan Skyway Scenic Drive...a must do!

Cottonwood RV Park, Bluff, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park with excellent views of the surrounding mountains. It's centrally located in the small village of Bluff with easy access and wide roads within the park. Our site was very level, extra wide and long. Water pressure was excellent and power was clean and steady. The owner was born in Bluff and her family has owned the park since it was built 18 years ago. They clearly care about their visitors and go out of their way to accommodate. The park shows their commitment to service. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Bluff Fort is a must see; the story of how this town was settled is harrowing. Be sure to drive over to Sand Island (BLM land on the San Juan river) to see the very large petroglyph panel; there has been some graffiti but its now been fenced off to prevent further destruction. Comb Ridge restaurant is excellent; they are also as close as you'll get to a local 'Starbucks.'.

Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Cottonwood Campground, Chinle, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This is a first come, first served basic campground. There are no hookups but there is water available and a dump station. The sites were level and there were lots of choices between shade/no shade/access to DirecTV signal. The great thing about this campground is its proximity to the entrance to Canyon de Chelly. A number of the other reviews talked about vendors and stray dogs wandering around. We saw none of this and, in fact, were pleasantly surprised at how nice the campground was considering it is basic boondocking. Regarding the water, the faucet at the dump station was out of order when we were there, but there are faucets located in the center of each loop. We had one directly behind our site (#90 in loop 3). A 30' hose did the trick. We camped at Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to tour the canyon, you must go in with a Native guide. We were quite satisfied with our tour company, Canyon de Chelly Tours. Our Navajo guide has lived in the Canyon her whole life and was quite knowledgeable about the flora, fauna and archaeological sites. She was quite open to talking about her culture and how it has evolved over the centuries. She also showed us some great photo points and made sure we got some wonderful shots.

Hopi Cultural Center, Tuba City, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The Hope Cultural Center includes a museum, motel, restaurant and several gift shops featuring local tribal art, jewelry and textiles. There is a campground next door, with concrete picnic tables; the drive surface is loose sand and dirt, okay for small trucks or cars with good traction. Larger rigs are allowed to park on the asphalt perimeter (all around the facility) as long as you don't impede parking or traffic. This is a dry camping location; no services. Its free so consider having lunch or dinner in the restaurant (food is good and nicely priced) or buying something from the local vendors or the gift shop. Note, there are a large number of locals selling their craft on the perimeter of the campground. Please be respectful and polite. This is a good stop over point if you're traveling from Lake Powell, heading to Canyon de Chelly National Monument. We camped at Hopi Cultural Center in a Motorhome.
