Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

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

August 9,10 Tunnel Mountain Trailer Campground, Banff National Park, Banff, Canada -$36.20, Full Hookups, picnic table but no firepit, site 836 This campground is one of three on Tunnel Mountain Road ten minutes out of Banff. It is huge with 321 sites all pull-throughs. Tunnel Mountain Village 2 Campground next to it has electric and 188 sites. Tunnel Mountain Village 1 Campground has 618 no hookup sites but it does have fire pits and 618 sites. These three campgrounds combined have over 1000 sites. Check-in was easy. There are hiking trails and bike trails surrounding the campgrounds. Ranger programs at night. There are bathhouses in every third row with a shower. We had a very sunny site and not much privacy. Great for riding bikes. There is a laundromat down the road. These campgrounds are ten minutes away from the town of Banff with shops, restaurants, hotels and historic sites. There are shuttles for downtown and some of the sites that come right to the campgrounds. Good stay but this place is huge and very busy. We camped at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court Campground - Full Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Icefields Centre RV (Parks Canada), Jasper National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Aug 3, Thursday Columbia Icefield Centre, Jasper National Park, Alberta - Self pay $15.70, no hookups, large RV parking lot at the Centre This was an overflow campground but it's available for boondocking right next to the Centre where you can buy tickets for a bus tour of the glacier or hike up a trail on your own. There are vault toilets to use at night when the Centre is not open. We arrived around 9:30 in the morning and RV's were leaving from staying the night. The parking lot is also used for parking RV's during the day for the Centre so it does fill up. Most evenings the parking lot is full and you must have self- registered at the booth to stay the night. The night we stayed there only 17 rigs were there. We were lucky to find a spot that was level since the lot does slope down. The views from the lot are amazing with glaciers and mountains surrounding it. This was a good one night stop but be warned RV's come and go during the day and park where ever they feel like. Short walk to reach the Icefield Centre which is an observatory looking out across to the Athabasca Glacier and Columbia Icefield. It is also a Canada Travel Information stop and has a restaurant and gift shop. Tickets are sold here for the bus tours out to the glacier where passengers change to special busses that will drive you out to the glacier so you can walk around. You may also hike out there on your own. Very busy place! We camped at Icefields Centre RV (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Aug 1-2, Tuesday/Wednesday Lake Louise Trailer Campground, Banff National Park, Site 177, electric, bathhouses but no showers, Loops near the Bow River, $37 This is a Canadian National Park Campground two and half miles out of Lake Louise but right off route 1. There are two campgrounds here the Trailer Campground and Tent Campground for tenters and soft sided campers. The Tent Campground is surrounded by an electric fence to protect campers from bears. The Trailer Campground has long pull through sites with electric only and there are two campers in each space. The sites are located in the woods. The sites are fine but if two huge RV's are park next to each other it could be tough. There are bathhouses but no showers. Dump station and water available for the RV's. Trains do roll by during the day. The Bow River is next to the campground with trails through the woods to it. Nice trail along the river. No fires allowed in the trailer campground. There is a picnic table at each site. This is a great campground to stay to visit Banff especially the Lake Louise Area. It is open all year! Make reservations because they post full and a number of sites were vacant but they don't give them out. We camped at Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This park was mobbed, so we had to leave at 7am to park at Lake Louise and find a spot good for our 25ft RV. Lake Louise has parking lots and the last one is for RV's and cars. Make sure you can get your RV out of the lot because some RV's were stuck.. We were there four hours and by nine every spot was filled and no more RV's were let in. This happened the day before, RV's were turned away all afternoon. We were turned away from another lake close by after we visited Lake Louise. Lake Louise is beautiful but there were clouds in the morning but by 9am the sun was out and they had cleared out.

Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park, Golden, British Columbia

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

July 31, Monday Town of Golden Municipal Campground, 70 sites, hookups and no hookups, $42, site 2, WiFi This campground is in the town of Golden, BC between Glacier National Park and Yoho National Park. It is run by the town and located on the river which you can walk to but can't see from your site because of a dike. Railroad tracks are across the river and you can hear the trains but they did not bother us. There are also tent sites in the woods. Many of the sites along the river are narrow and right next to others. It is located in a busy area with a school across the street. Check in was easy and there is a little store at the office. Showers and the laundromat are next to the office and there is a second bathhouse closer to the wood sites. This campground filled up at night especially now being summer time. The washers/dryers/ showers would not accept our quarters and the office didn't have anything to exchange it. This is a convenient town to get gas and food before one heads into Lake Louise. We camped at Golden Municipal Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Blanket Creek Provincial Park, Revelstoke, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

July 30, Sunday, Blanket Creek Provincial Park, 105 sites, $28, no hookups or showers, Site 47 This campground is located about 14 miles south of Revelstoke in British Columbia. The Columbia River flows past some of the sites and there is a nice swimming area in the day use area creek filled. The sites are large with a cedar picnic table and fire pit. We found that the sites near the river attracted more bugs. No hookups but they do have bathhouses but no showers. Showers are going to be added to this campground by next summer 2018 and expect prices to go up. Our site was at the end of the road and we really liked it, especially on a hot day since it had lots of shade. The walk to the swimming hole can be tiring but one can drive over there and park in the lot. It is self checkin but the rangers ride their bikes around in the late afternoon to check the reserved and first come sites. They were so nice and gave us some great information about what to do in the area. There is a waterfall trail across from the dump station that is worth seeing. RV's can park there and take the short 5 min hike to it. There was a fire ban when we were there and driving to the campground off of 23, we could see fires in the mountains. Good stop! We really liked our big site here in the woods. Very pretty! We camped at Blanket Creek Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

City Campground, Nelson, British Columbia

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

July 29, Saturday Nelson City Park, Nelson, BC $45, 37 sites many with hookups, Site 2 This is a City Park located on High Street in the town of Nelson, BC. The roads are narrow and the sites are unlevel located on a slope above the town which looks out to the lake. Large RV's are not recommended. We are only 25' and it was tight. Sites are narrow and close together. Checkin was easy and the girl was very informative. There are free showers here and bathrooms next to the office. Crowded park run by the town with the income from the park helping to support youth activities in the area. We stayed here because the historic district of the town is about a half a mile walk from the campground and there is a pathway down to the lake. The park needs some updating. Nelson was an old mining town for iron and silver then logging and sawmilling. There are over 350 historic sites in town left over from the boom days. Many are open to the public but not the private homes. Trucks can not drive in the historic section of town and dogs also have restricted zones. Looking out from our site, we could see the traffic of route 3A but also the lake. We had driven from Grand Coulee over 200 miles, and crossed through the border, so it was a good stop for us. There is also a Walmart about a half mile from the campground but it is the smallest one in Canada and very busy. Most of their shelves were empty. If you need to stay in town this is the place but if not I would move on. We camped at City Campground in a Motorhome.

Grand Coulee RV Park, Grand Coulee, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

$31 for full hookups This is a small private campground about a mile west of Grand Coulee on route 174. We wanted to visit the Grand Coulee Visitor Center during the day and then attend the laser show at night, so we needed something close. This fit the bill. The owner was nice and took us to our site up a hill. Sites are close together but we faced away from the sun and it was easy to pull through and pull out. Big rigs can camp here since the newer sites are 45 ft or more. There is a little area to walk your pets. It Is not the best looking campground and the roads are narrow. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand Coulee RV Park in a Motorhome.

Steamboat Rock State Park, Electric City, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

July 27, Thursday Steamboat Rock State Park, 136 full hookups, 26 standard sites, 80 primitive sites, bathhouses, $40, Site 30 This state park is in the eastern part of Washington and about 12 miles south of Grand Coulee and the Dam. There are three campgrounds in the park right next to each other. Sage Camp, Dune Camp and Bay Camp. We were in Sage Camp site 30. It was fine but it was in the mid 90's and this site was in the sun all afternoon and early evening. I would choose a site on the north side of the loops. The 81 to 90 loop in the Dune Camp is nice and near everything. I did not like the Bay Camp at all - no trees and very crowded but it is the closest to the boat launch. There is a boat launching area, swimming areas, floating area, bike trails, hiking trails, horse trails, concession store, fish cleaning stations and volleyball areas in the park. The park is in the desert but with some trees and located on beautiful Banks Lake, which is one of two lakes formed by the Grand Coulee Dam. Steamboat Rock towers 800 feet over the campground and lake. It is a beautiful area and Grand Coulee Dam Visitor Center is 12 miles north of it. The Visitor Center has exhibits and tours of the Dam on and in July it was at 10pm. We enjoyed our stay here and reservations are needed since many families come for a week in the summer. We camped at Steamboat Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

July 25,26 Blu-Shastin RV Resort, Peshastin, Washington 86, many seasonals, $36 full hookups, back in to river This campground is located about 8 miles from Leavenworth, Washington. It is off 97 with 86 sites but many of them are seasonals. We enjoyed our stay here but the sites are close together. Our site was a shady full hookup backin with the river behind it. Checkin was easy and the man at the desk was very friendly. There is a small pool, laundromat, WiFi, horse shoes, playground and volley ball. Pets are allowed on leash and fires contained in the pits. This campground was convenient for us to drive into the Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth about 8 miles away. There is parking for RV's in town but get there early because this is a busy town with lots of tourists. We camped at Blu-Shastin RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pearrygin Lake State Park, Winthrop, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

June 24, Monday - Pearrygin Lake state Park, 165 sites, water & electricity, site 43, cost $40 This state park has two sections the East and West. The West section was a private campground right on the lake but the sites are close together with services. We stayed in the East campground which was the original state park. Our site was right on the lake, site 43 and a pull through. This campground is popular with swimming, boating, fishing and camping. Many come to stay for the week. It is a nice campground with bathhouses and pay showers. The sites have grass around them and fields are located throughout the campground. This is eastern Washington and it was a beautiful day but very hot. There is a nice steady breeze off the lake. When we got there someone was in our site and they were cutting down some trees in the campground so the road into our loop was closed. We arrived around noon and they have sprinklers around the park. We parked our RV in our site then waited for over two hours while two sprinklers soaked our site and power washed one side of our RV. It was loud and we could not put our slide out or open windows. A park worker finally turned it off. This park is near the adorable western town of Winthrop the cross country in Washington. RV's can not park on the street but there are signs where RV's can park like on route 20 The Big Red Barn Parking Lot. This town is located at the eastern end of the North Cascades National Park scenic byway route 20. We camped at Pearrygin Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Newhalem Creek (NPS Campground), North Cascades National Park, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

July 22,23 Newhalem Creek Campground (NPS) in North Cascades National Park, Washington, Site 31, 116 sites, $8 with Golden Age Pass, Dump Station, no hookups but water is available, bathhouses but no showers I really liked this National Park Campground located in the North Cascades National Park. There are four loops. A & B are on one side of the road and C & Group sites are on the other. We had site 31 in the B loop and it was my favorite loop because it was smaller and very quiet. Trails led off the loop to the Visitor Center and the River Loop Trail. A and B are reservation only and if available. The C loop was burned down in a fire in 2015 and just opened up five days ago on first come first serve. You can still see the burned trees but the wildflowers were in bloom and just stunning surrounding the sites. Next year the whole campground will be reservation only. The sites are spaced apart from each other and they are huge. We were able to back up and then the picnic table, firepit and two huge spots on sand platforms for tents were in the woods. There are hiking trails from the campground to the Visitor Center, town, river walk and other trails throughout the park. The hosts were very helpful with ideas of what to see and do. There were ranger talks every night we were there. This campground is the largest and busiest in the park and right off scenic route 20 next to the town of Newhalem. The history of this park is fascinating and the exhibits at the Visitor Center is a good place to start. We camped at Newhalem Creek (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Deception Pass State Park, Oak Harbor, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

July 20,21 Deception Pass State Park, Washington, $40, Cranberry Lake Campground, site 42, water & electric or no hookups, dump station, 250 sites, reservations year round This state park is located on Whidbey Island and one can take a ferry from Port Townsend and the mainland or drive in from the north on route 20. There are three campgrounds located in this state park; Cranberry Lake - which is the biggest one located on the Puget Sound and Cranberry Lake. Quarry Pond located across the road with 60 sites all with water and electric and Bowman Bay with 20 sites but no hookups but right on the Bay (small RV's only). The main campground roads are narrow and not recommended for larger units in all three campgrounds. In the park there are trails, fishing, boating, swimming and beaches on the Puget Sound. Most of the sites are in evergreens with no views except for the Bowman Bay area. Driving in from the north the Bowman Bay Campground is before the Deception Pass Bridge and the other two campgrounds are right after the bridge. The bridge is high up and narrow with beautiful views. We enjoyed our stay here, but be warned a Naval Air Station is right near the park and it is a training area for pilots. The two days we were there the jets and planes were loud and went right over our site. I just pretended that is was a Top Gun like Tom Cruise flying around above us and that made it easier to take. I wish this State Park would enforce their two vehicles per site limit (including camping unit) and the number of people in a site. We had a number of sites around us that had four vehicles parked on site with a lot of people camping. We camped at Deception Pass State Park in a Motorhome.

Dosewallips State Park, Brinnon, Washington

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

July 16,17 Sunday/Monday Dosewallips State Park on the Hood Canal, Site 31, hookups, no hookups, $45, 140 sites This park is located on route 101 along the Hood Canal and the Olympic National Park to the west of it. We had met many campers that love this park and highly recommended it. There are sites with hookups in a grass field and no hookups in the field and in the woods. This is a big rig friendly park. One has to drive under 101 to reach one of the no hookup loops but many of those sites are right on the river where one can swim. The trail to Hood Canal is also on that side of 101 and to get out to the canal is a long trek especially if you are carrying anything to dig for oysters and clams. You must have a license and there is a limit on what you can catch. Traveling on route 101 along the Hood Canal is a beautiful drive. Nice stay! We camped at Dosewallips State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Worden State Park (Upper/Forest campground), Port Townsend, Washington

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

July 14,15 Fort Townsend State Park, Fort Townsend, Washington, Site 35, no hookups, bathhouse with one shower (fee), 40 reservable sites I have mixed feelings about this campground. Only campers under 21' can stay in the loop in the woods. That loop is located on hills and many of them are unlevel and need to be repaved. I did like the loop though and saw a few of them that would fit our 25' RV without a tow. The other location has 13 sites for RV's with no hookups. The sites are right next to each other with some shade. Sites are very narrow and not for big rigs, big slides and are not level. Tow cars and trucks might have to be parked near the ranger station. We had to back out of our site even though it was a pull through. The site next to us the firegrill was about two feet away from our propane. It is a quiet campground even though there were weddings the two days we stayed here. The rangers were very helpful. This is a 367 acre campground with over 3,960 feet of shoreline on Port Townsend Bay. The walk down to the Bay is downhill and the walk back is a steep climb. There are many hiking and some biking trails (mountain bikes) all over the park. The park is located where the Old Fort Townsend Fort was built in 1856 to protect the settlers from the Indians. Much of the fort burned down but it was used in WW2 as an enemy munitions defusing station. We stopped in the Historic Town of Port Townsend before we went to the campground about two miles away. There is a free Park/Ride for cars and RV's located on 440, 12th street. Stop in the information booth there for maps of the town. Very easy with plenty of room to park and then you can hop on the shuttles for $1.50 ($1.00 for seniors) for an all day pass. You can also take a shuttle over to Fort Worden. Cute town with shops, restaurants, Victorian Houses and the ferry over to Whidbey Island for the day. We camped at Fort Worden State Park (Upper/Forest campground) in a Motorhome.

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

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

July 12,13 Wednesday, Thursday Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend, Washington - 80 sites located in two campgrounds - Beach and Forest. $45, full hookups, Site Beach 16, Bathhouses with pay showers This is a huge complex in Port Townsend located on 434 acres with two miles of saltwater shoreline overlooking the Puget Sound. There is a full conference center here on 90 acres which includes more than 70 historic structures surrounding the old parade grounds and two campgrounds. One can stay in in the restored houses with their Victorian parlors and eat at a few restaurants scattered throughout the park. We stayed in the beach campground with checkin at the conference center or you can use express checkin. There is a store within walking distance that sells supplies as well as burgers. Our site #16 was a backin right next to the host and a short walk to the beach. Every site has a view of the Puget Sound and the 1889 Lighthouse. Pets are allowed on leash. All the sites at the beach campground are full hookups with bathhouses that are clean with two showers (fee) each. The Forest campground is in the woods away from the beach but the sites are nice and more private. One can walk along the beach to the old lighthouse or hike to the remains of the historic fort itself. We biked around the paved trails and the fort and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. There are some museums on this property and the Marine Science Center. The Port Townsend School of Woodworking is located here which is known for their wood crafting skills and historic preservation. This was a great stay at a very popular campground. Reservations would be wise. It was full both days we were there! . Walking along the beach in early evening, we were able to see two snow covered mountains in the distance. Mt. Baker (Northern Cascades) and looking southeast snowcapped Mt. Ranier. Wow! We camped at Fort Worden State Park (Beach campground) in a Motorhome.
