Green River Campground, Dinosaur National Monument - NPS, Jensen, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

A lovely desert campground located next to the Green River. Cottonwood trees provide partial shade for some sites, but most are sunny. Only one loop of the three can be reserved in advance, but we had a large choice of sites when pulling in around 2:30 on a weekday. We selected a pull-alongside site adjacent to the river. The evening winds can sometimes be strong, so stake down any tents. We camped at Green River Campground, Dinosaur National Monument - NPS in a Travel Trailer.

Silt / Colorado River KOA, Silt, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

A newer KOA located a short distance off I-70 west of Glenwood Springs. Landscaping is clearly being added, but currently there is no real shade. Freeway noise was not a problem for us. The patio sites are right along the river. We would stay again. We camped at Silt / Colorado River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Difficult Campground, Aspen, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Difficult Campground is a Forest Service campground located a few miles outside of Aspen along Independence Pass. It is well below the 35' vehicle length restriction portion of the pass so long as you approach it from the Aspen side. Don't let your GPS try to route you over the pass when driving to Aspen! The campground is situated in a steep valley filled with aspen trees. Most sites are somewhat sloped and have partial shade. We had to use about 4 lynx levelers to level side to side, but some sites were better about that. The pit toilets were clean and well maintained. The campground host was considerate when he stopped by. Do use the provided bear boxes at each site to store coolers and food. We stayed 2 nights, and would be happy to stay there again. We camped at Difficult Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Prospector Campground - USFS, Silverthorne, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

We spent a night at Prospector and enjoyed the fairly level pull-through site. The pit toilets were scrupulously clean and had no unpleasant odor at all. The road in is dirt, and a little rough from frost damage. There is a great view of the lake from some sites, others are in meadows with small conifers. The pine beetle damage a number of years ago meant most of the trees had been cut down, but they are growing back. The stars were spectacular! We camped at Prospector Campground - USFS in a Travel Trailer.

There is a trail from Prospector down to the lake. Look for Wagon Wheel trail online to find a map.

Peach Beach Campark (Sunset Orchards), Goldendale, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

A pleasant green campground with small trees and riverfront views. Clean and comfortable. We would happily stay again.

After seeing the neighboring state park was going to cost $53.00 for one night, I selected Peach Beach for our overnight stay in the Maryhill area. The only difficulty was in making a reservation. We called during the posted hours on their website, and had no luck reaching anyone. The voicemail box was full, so we could not leave a message.

We pulled into the park around 4pm on a Thursday afternoon with no reservations, and took one of the few open sites remaining. It was a water and electric back-in site with a fairly level gravel drive. The site was moderately narrow, but we fit.

The campground is well-manicured, green, and filled with many small trees. A peach orchard just outside gives the campground its name. We enjoyed walking down near the river, and over to Maryhill State Park right next door. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained, but a bit out-dated looking. The dump station was clean and functional. We had a pleasant stay, and would happily visit again. We camped at Peach Beach Campark (Sunset Orchards) in a Travel Trailer.

Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Our plans on where to stay changed due to the flooding of the Colorado River, so the BLM site we wanted was closed. Portal was clean, laid out well, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Trees are present, but small, and spacing between spots was reasonable. Like many commercial campgrounds, there wasn't a lot of privacy. The owners allowed us to check out a couple hours late when we asked. The group camping area was flooded as it is near the river, but our site was dry and level. We fell asleep to the chorus of bullfrogs. We would stay there again. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

South Rim (NPS Campground), Black Canyon Gunnison Nat'l Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived later in the evening and were greeted by the camp host. He was very polite and told us to be careful of the people returning from the ranger talk about stars. Our site was back-in, with electric, picnic table, and fire ring. Privacy and site spacing were good, and it was a pleasant location. We would be happy to camp there again. The park is beautiful and well worth a visit. We camped at South Rim (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
