PJ Hoffmaster State Park, Muskegon, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Large cg with 3 large loops of sandy dirt more or less level sites, 14 being pull throughs with 50 30 20 amps, rest 30 20 amps. Variable size sites many poorly defined. Lots of large trees. Small play ground. A dump toward the entrance. Three standard clean Michigan park bath house for 293 sites. CG tarmac roads rough with potholes, some being repaired presently. There is a trail to the lake I didn't take. Office lady was very helpful and pleasant. An overnite stay. I was not impressed with the CG itself. The park includes a further away beach area and a Sand Dunes nature center with trails and stairways in the impressive dunes which are the attraction. I would not care to use this cg again. We camped at PJ Hoffmaster State Park in a Motorhome.

South Marcum Campground, Benton, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

Our 3d overnite stay in Owl's Roost section in 7 years. Well kept COE park with paved roads and sites. Extensive biking and hiking paths, lots of forest with deer, squirrels seen. Other sections have sites by the large lake. At Owl Roost electric only at 11 of 18 sites. a toilet/sink hut only with a water faucet close by in center of Owl Roost loop. Dump near entrance. My main complaint is almost all sites in the park are unlevel as seen from a biking around, many badly. Overall, the park is a great public resource. We camped at South Marcum Campground in a Motorhome.

Markin Glen County Park, Kalamazoo, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the best CGs I ever have been. Paved roads and large wide level paved sites with large patios, widely separated with good mowed grass, few small trees, EWS. Huge park with tennis court, playground, an extensive 8ft wide paved bike/hiking path surrounding 2 lakes with a sandy swimming beach, all very well maintained, and a entrance dump. Across the highway is another large wooded section of the park. All this for $28. Reservations available. Kalamazoo county parks deserves applause for a great job. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Motorhome.

Woodland Park Campground, Grand Marais, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

First come, first served, and almost full Sept 21 and 22d. At this time the western half of the CG is closed because of new utilities being placed in a long deep trenches. The eastern side is open but with the lake side sites taken mostly by longer stayers. Grass mostly level sites with lots of trees. The day we arrived there was a fierce wind storm coming off the lake; you could hardly stand up on the edge of the bluffs overlooking the sandy beach and the wind driven waves. And, the power to the whole town and CG went out. Bathhouse - no lights. Next day power back and walked the soft sand beach accessed by two stairways. The town is nice to walk about. A narrow very winding road goes west to Pictured Rocks. I liked this CG and its high bluffs and sandy beach overlooking lake Michigan. We camped at Woodland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Ludington State Park, Ludington, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

I divide my review as a poor cg, but a most excellent park. I had the $32 MI annual pass but still $37/ nite. There are 3 separate cgs, Pine, Cedar and Beechwood, along a paved road by the short Sable river running between Lake Michigan and Hamlin Lake. The cgs are in three narrow valleys with very close central sites fairly level, with peripheral sites short and unlevel dirt slooping up the sides of the valley/ravines. Bathhouses standard MI, clean with hot showers. (I had a paved handicapped site; others dirt.) The park itself is great with paved meandering walking/biking trails on both sides of the road and the river. Lots of hiking trails. a 2 mile gravel road to the lighthouse you can bike, the dam impounding the river, and signs about the vanished little town of Hamlin. Beautiful forest trees. I didn't get to the Lake beach. We camped at Ludington State Park in a Motorhome.

Merrick State Park, Fountain City, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Overnite stay. The out of stater price was an $11 fee plus $31/ nite so price wise $42, much over priced. The north cg was itself a nice paved loop with gravel mostly level sites well spaced with electric post at back side of site. Lots of nice grass and trees. Only 2 water non threaded water faucets. Didn't use the bath house. A short trail to a lake inlet. A close by train track. There is a dump between the 2 campgrounds we didn't use. We drove through the south cg long loop which is a distance away and is mostly small short sites for tents, without electricity. The middle of the south loop is basically a swamp. We camped at Merrick State Park in a Motorhome.

Ontonagon Township Park and Campground, Ontonagon, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Overnighted Sept 24, a Monday, so there were many vacant sites to choose from. We were on a sandy site facing Lake Superior just 3 sites west of the little office. Adequate site width. The water faucet was a shared one a distance away, the electric post right there. The narrow sandy beach had lots of logs washed up, one a beautiful cedar stripped of bark. The bath house was clean but showers 75 cents for 6 minutes. The camp road was paved. Sites varied for levelness. Scattered areas of trees. The campground attendant friendly helpful and very talkative. A nice stay. We camped at Ontonagon Township Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Lathrop State Park, Walsenburg, Colorado

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

Bought the 1 year Colorado state park pass for $70 avoiding the otherwise each time fees in our 3 week CO trip. Pinon CG has nicely paved roads and mostly level pull through sites with electricity. Scattered Faucets. Nicely spaced sites with mowed grass. Coin operated showers. I enjoyed a sandstone boulder field just behind my site with many water bored pot holes. A history of a rocky fast flowing river there in the geological past. There are 2 lakes for boating and lots of roads to bike about in the CG. This was one of my most favorite CO parks. We camped at Lathrop State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Meredith National Recreation Area, Fritch, Texas

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

NRA park overlooking Lake Meridith reservoir and dam. Scattered sun shelters and picnic tables and dirt/gravel more or less flatten ill-defined "sites" by the cliffs giving great views of the water, hills and sunsets. First come, serve, for free. There are several more recent paved pull through real sites with electricity and apparently reservable further away up the hill with a bathhouse that I didn't investigate. We were dry camping and really enjoyed our short stay. We camped at Lake Meredith National Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Shady Grove Campground, Seibert, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Just off I-70, Seibert is a tiny town with a railroad and grain elevators. The bridge connecting it to I-70 is presently being rebuilt so going West to East, you have to go East to the next cross over bridge and return West. Leaving Seibert take US 24 just North out of town going east and at Vona return to I-70 to go East. Shady Grove is a small but very neat well kept CG run by a pleasant young couple. The sites were gravel with chip wood paths between, and a small white very clean bathhouse with hot shower and laundry, and their nice house, separating a south transient section and a north long stay area. Lots of trees. This is a very nice overnite CG along the great plains of Colorado. We camped at Shady Grove Campground in a Motorhome.

An off the state road 11 COE CG in North central OK with 54 widely spaced lightly unlevel gravel sites most with nice large trees by the beautiful large Kaw lake reservior. EW at sites with a metal shelter over table and bench, lots of well mowed grass fields with a frisbee golf course, a nice playground, a boat launch ramp and dock.

Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground), Hayden, Colorado

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

Large flat grassy cg with gravel roads and sites. No water at sites but scattered blue unusual spigots that on lifting lever water comes out below the spout through a large bottom hole with a brass ring about it. Pulling the ring down lets the water exit the expected spout. It took me 30 minutes to figure this out. Sites were widely spaced, a few had trees by them. CG right by the fast moving Yapa river with a boat put in. A nice paved dump at the cg entrance. The visit center/office was very nice with a huge area relief table map and displays. The bath house was by coin for shower, but unbelievibly beautiful with inexpensive washer/driers. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

Stillwater Campground, Granby, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We lucked out to come without reservation and found a nice level EW site with a beautiful 360 degree view of the mountains and the huge blue lake Gramby. Each site has a patio with a wood table and a firepit. Sites vary widely in length and levelness. Bathhouses varied with or without coin pay showers but very clean and attractive. Roads are paved, sites gravel, some small trees and scrub. 21 sites with electricity and water hookups. Some tent only area sites. There are a few sites with class A motorhomes barely fitting. Paved dump at entrance. Scatteried faucets. Very pleasant host. We really liked out site and stay. We camped at Stillwater Campground in a Motorhome.
