Show Low Lake Campground, Lakeside, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice campground that's similar to a forest service campground. 8 electric sites. Sites were not level but we had no problems leveling out. We were in site # 31 with electric. We were able to get our dome satellite in and we had a decent cell and air card signal. A fire ring with a grate and a pedestal BBQ along with a nice picnic table is provided. Campground is open year round taking reservations during their high season. We arrived mid Oct. and the sites were first come. Discounts are given with the Golden Age Pass that you can purchase at a Rangers Station. We paid $15.00 because we used our pass otherwise an electric site is $26 a night. Dump station available and potable water is available near the restrooms. Play ground is fenced in and next to the campground office/store. Lake is across the road with a boat dock but people were using it to fish off of. Stores are close by with lots of restaurants to choose from. We camped at Show Low Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Lyman Lake State Park, Saint Johns, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We were here late in the season and we were by ourselves most of the time. There are many camping areas to choose from. Dry camping next to the lake, pull throughs near the beginning of the park with full hookups, back ins below the full hookups area. Further down the main road are pull throughs with water and electric only. Wide sites with BIG ramadas with a separate power plug and lighting. Further up the road are more water electric site mixed in with dry camping sites. There are cabins next to the lake and yurts in the upper areas campground. Verizon cell and aircard even with an antenna and signal booster rarely worked. We went into Saint John's and used the librarys internet which was faster than Verizon. There's an easy access dump station near the full hookups. They didn't charge us a daily park pass fee while we were here. We stayed until the park closed for the winter. Peaceful location and would stay here again. We camped at Lyman Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

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

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park, newly paved interior road and sites. There are a few big rig sites that are pull throughs. No Verizon cell or internet signal in the campground. Horseback riding available and guided tours of the canyon. There was some sort of construction going on next to the park and we were awakened in the morning with heavy equipment beeping going on. Park is busy on the weekends but pretty quiet people-wise midweek. Did notice kids with their parents during the midweek: would think they should be in school. Noticed a few dogs loose but they weren't aggressive. The dump station was open but we didn't check to see if there was potable water available. We noticed a deserted host site near the dump station that had a power box. Might be able to use it!!?? It was late in the season when we were here. We camped at Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Cottonwood Campground in a Motorhome.

Lathrop State Park, Walsenburg, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

There are two campgrounds at this park. Yucca campground is non-electric and is close to interstate and noisy. Pinon Campground has 50 amp electric sites with pull through and back ins on pavement. You can hear some interstate noise but it wasn’t bad when sitting outside. At night we couldn’t hear the traffic when inside. The sites are close together but we found site 42 (pull through) to be large and private. Site wasn’t level but it didn’t take much to level her out. Site had a nice table next to the trees where we also put out our chairs. Camp Hosts were helpful and friendly along with the Park Rangers. Verizon cell and air card only worked with our antenna and signal booster. We didn’t have any problems getting a signal on our dome satellite. We only stayed one night and would have liked to stay longer. Park is not taking reservations right now (Sept 18,2011) so it’s first come on all sites. Weekends are busy but midweek there’s not many people. We camped at Lathrop State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Pueblo State Park, Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

The photographs of our site (310) that were on the ReserveAmerica.com site must have been taken in the spring. There was no green grass when we arrived, in fact there wasn’t any grass. I think the prairie dogs probably ate all of it. Not a very hospitable landscape and the vegetation looked like it was struggling. Our site was a pull through and level. It’s impossible to stay on the asphalt due to the shape of the pull through. Very windy the 2 days we were here. Good 30-amp power and a good Verizon cell and Aircard signal. There was nothing in the way to interrupt a satellite signal even though there are some trees in the park. A good overnighter since this isn’t one of Colorado State Parks best. We camped at Lake Pueblo State Park in a Motorhome.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice quiet campground far away from highways. We stayed in D Loop, site 191 (pull through) and enjoyed the views and the total privacy it afforded. Site was level, water pressure was between 40 to 50 psi , power was at 120 VAC and we didn’t have any problems with the sewer. Verizon cell and air card had a good signal and there were no tall trees to block our dome satellite. Site had a nice cement pad with plenty of room to park the car. The only sound we heard at night was the train that was off in the distance and the coyotes howling at night. We enjoyed this park and would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Chatfield State Park in a Motorhome.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a large park with lots of trees with back in and pull through sites. When I looked at the state parks campground map I didn’t see any roads except the campground roads. When we arrived at the park and we drove to Gold Rush loop, site 86, I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears. We were facing the I- 225 and it was loud. So, if you don’t want to listen to road noise ALL day stay away from the east and north side of Gold Rush. The other loops are quiet. The sites are very nice and all of the utilities worked well. Water pressure was between 40 and 70 psi so we used our regulator. Verizon cell and air card worked well, had a good signal. Some sites will be more difficult than others to get a dome satellite in. Site wasn’t level but we had no problems leveling out. Park daily pass is $9.00 unless you have their annual pass. We would stay here again but not in Gold Rush. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Arrowhead Point Campground and Cabins , Buena Vista, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice well maintained campground. Power was good, water pressure was at 50 PSI and we had no problems with the sewer. Sites are dirt and gravel and wide enough for all of our slides and awning with room to sit outside. There is road noise but not at night. Wi-Fi was excellent. Verizon cell and aircard was iffy even with our antenna and signal booster. We were in #1 which is a back in site backed up to the trees. It’s about as far away from the road noise as you can get. We were able to use our dome satellite which was nice. Site was almost level and easy to level out. Lots of things to do in the area. The town has a great sports complex with very nice tennis courts. One thing, when owners use the word resort in the name of the park I expect to see a pool/spa, cable TV, etc. At $44.00 a night it would have been nice. Paid for 6 nights with the 7th night free. There was also a $5.00 charge for making the reservation online. We would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Arrowhead Point Campground and Cabins in a Motorhome.

Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins, Leadville, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very rustic campground at 10,000 ft. with some sites under trees and others out in the open. Pine trees are scattered throughout the park. Our site (back in) was located at the back of the park near the dog walk area. We felt the sites were wider and less cramped compared to the pull throughs. Also, the road was paved in this area. They have laundry facilities, a rec. room with a pool table, arcade games and a book exchange. Our site wasn’t level but we were able to level out with no problems. Water pressure was 40 psi, power was steady and we encounter no problems with the sewer. Our Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here and if you have a cell phone antenna and booster you’ll get a great signal. We were able to use our dome satellite. It rained every other day while here and we didn’t have any problems with mud puddles. Each site has a fire/grill ring along with a picnic table. Like I said this is a very rustic campground, not an RV park but we were pretty comfortable and really liked the people who worked here. The Mt Massive Golf Course is only a few minutes away. Follow the signs to Turquoise Lake you can’t miss the campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Sugar Loafin' RV Campground & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Redstone Campground, Redstone, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

The reason I gave this campground such a low score was the double site we had and the power problems. We were in site # 6 with site #7 next to us. The site was configured so poorly that when the people in site 7 arrived the power box was located next to the rear of our coach. They were about 40 feet short of reaching the electrical box. We lent them an extension cord but they still couldn’t reach it unless they parked right next to us. We plugged our power in earlier and didn’t have anything running in the coach. Later when we went in and we turned on our AC the power kept going on and off. Our low power/surge protector wouldn’t allow the power in. We spoke with the camp host and he was ADAMANT that it wasn’t the sites problem. He almost had us convinced too. We dry camped that night and left in the morning stopping at an RV park to ask if we could check our power in one of their sites. Plugged in and no problems! Unfortunately this park was booked over the weekend and we weren’t able to stay. We have stayed at 2 other parks since Redstone with no power issues. Redstone is beautiful and we were really looking forward to spending a week there. No Verizon cell signal and some sites are in the open so you can probably get your satellite in. Nightly rate is with our Golden Age Passport. We camped at Redstone Campground in a Motorhome.

Good for an over nighter. All the site amenities worked well. Not a park where you feel like taking a walk around since there is a lot of uphill hiking involved. VERY loud interstate noise. Overpriced for what you get. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Rifle Falls State Park, Rifle, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful state park, green lush vegetation. All of the utilities worked great. There are no showers here and you have to share the water faucet with your neighbor. There are a number of trails in the park with one going to the falls. The bathrooms (2) are heavily used due to the heavy stream of people coming in to the park to use their day facilities and trails, one being the trail (short) to the falls. The bathrooms are clean but really smell bad. Just up above the fish hatchery which is on hwy 325 the one you drove up on (the kids can feed the fish) is a beautiful 2 mile drive that goes through a slot type canyon with sheer walls with lots of vegetation with a creek that runs along the road. This drive is not to be missed, it’s gorgeous!! The town of Rifle owns the property and there are numerous picnic tables along the 2 miles. There is a fee to use the area if you park to picnic or use their trail to the Ice Cave. While on this drive you’ll see rock climbers along the way. The road is hard packed dirt and is in very good condition, you don’t need a 4x4. The dump station is located at Rifle Gap State Park and is easy to get in and out of. If it wasn’t for all the foot and car traffic we would come back, but we really enjoyed the drive above the hatchery and the falls. We camped at Rifle Falls State Park in a Motorhome.

Vega State Park, Collbran, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

There are 4 campgrounds at Vega. We stayed in Early Settlers where there is water and power. The campground has beautiful views of the reservoir and mountains. Our site wasn’t level but we had no problems leveling out. There is no Verizon cell or air card service here, but nothing in the way to hinder a satellite signal. Water pressure was at 45 psi (using our pressure regulator) and had good steady electric. The power at each site is 30/50 amp. Picnic table and fire ring were in great condition and looked fairly new. There is a playground for kids at the beginning of the campground next to the shower/bathrooms. We took the forest service road up towards Grand Mesa but the road was in terrible condition and turned around. We were in our 4X4 and just didn’t feel like trashing it and the farther in we got the worse the road became. There are lots of areas to shore fish around the reservoir and places to picnic. We noticed a lodge on the other side of the reservoir that has a restaurant and an RV park. Midweek we noticed the campgrounds were not full but by the weekend our campground was full and campers headed over to the other campgrounds. Early Settlers Campground is on the reservation system and I don’t think there are any first come sites. The dump station is large with plenty of room to maneuver in and out even when towing a car. There is NO drinking water at the dump but water can be found in the campgrounds. We would stay here again. We camped at Vega State Park in a Motorhome.

Crawford State Park, Crawford, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at Iron Creek Campground which is the only campground with electric hook ups at this state park. Clear Fork Campground does not have hook ups. Nice state park with great facilities. Large sites, level, with a nice sun shelter and picnic table. The power was at a steady 120 volts and water was around 45 psi. Nothing in the park to hinder your satellite TV. They no longer charge for your tow car as long as you towed it into the park. The park day pass or an annual park pass can be purchased at the park office located between the town of Crawford and Clear Fork Campground. No Verizon cell or aircard here, but if you go up to the library in town you can get a signal for both. The library also has their own Wi-Fi that you can use inside or outside the building 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. If you need to use a computer they have 6 new computers that you can use. There are 2 small food stores but we chose to go to City Market in Hotchkiss which is about 12 miles from the park. The dump station is located near the exit of the park. We enjoyed the peace and quiet with the beautiful views and would return again if in the area. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Motorhome.

Pleasant Valley Cabins & Campground, Cimarron, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

When we first arrived at the park there were only 3 sites taken. The voltage was low so we hooked up our power booster and that seemed to help. By the time Friday rolled around all the sites were full and after everyone started hooking up to the power our power protector kept going on and off. The voltage was below 102 volts too many times to count. Low power is a good way to kill your AC and refrigerator. We kept our refrigerator and water heater on propane the whole time we were there. We unplugged the power and didn’t turn it back on until later on in the evenings. The same thing happened again on Saturday and Sunday. The owner was aware of the problem. The water pressure was at 55 psi and we didn’t have any problems with the sewer. The site was almost level so there were no problems leveling her out. No Verizon cell or internet service. There is Wi-Fi in the store/cafe but it was slow. We were able to get our dome satellite in which was nice so we didn’t have to set up the portable dish. This is a very rustic campground with the Little Cimmaron River right behind the back in site. It’s a pretty park, with gravel sites among large cottonwood trees. The park is close to a VERY busy highway 50 so the only way you can get away from some of the noise is to sit right next to the river. As a day trip we drove up to Silver Jack Reservoir on a good, paved, (21 miles) hard packed dirt road. Wildflowers were beautiful along the road beyond the entrance to Silver Jack Campground (forest service). Just past the campground back on the main road is the Silver Jack Overlook. Picture postcard views of the reservoir along with the majestic mountains, well worth the drive and it was a nice place for a picnic while you’re there. Due to the power problems and road noise we wouldn’t stay here again. In fact we couldn’t wait to get out of there. We camped at Pleasant Valley Cabins & Campground in a Motorhome.
