Amphitheater Campground, Ouray, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

There are some sites that are suitable for small trailers -- not big rigs. Campground is very well located, directly above (literally) Ouray. Great views. Shady and cool. If you are not sure you can fit in here, better to scout the sites without your trailer first. We camped at Amphitheater Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Ouray KOA, Ouray, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Well-located, well-run, not cheap. Sites are very close together -- a glorified gravel parking lot with some trees. Wifi gets slow in the evening. Laundry room is well equipped but can be busy. If you need hookups, this is probably the nicest and quietest park in the area -- most of the others are right on the highway. We camped at Ouray KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Difficult Campground, Aspen, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Although Hiway 82 runs along the cliff above the campground, you can hardly hear it, except for the occasional motorcycle. There are some sites nearer to the creek, which helps with the sound as well. Some sites are very narrow. Lots of shade. Camp hosts were pleasant but were having trouble communicating with the internet reservation folks, so we occupied a site (no reservation) and then had to move a day later because the hosts did not know that someone else was coming in. No big deal, but kind of a minor hassle. Campground is ten minutes east of Aspen and about a half hour from Maroon Bells. We camped at Difficult Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a lot to do in the area east of the campground -- great hiking in the high country near Independence Pass. But do not take a trailer or a big rig on the road east of the campground, even if you are under the 35 foot limit. The road is very narrow in places. Some folks do take trailers on that road -- I would not.

Beaver KOA, Beaver, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This was just an overnight. But when we pulled in at 9 pm, someone greeted us and took us to a site -- very surprising. I think he was off duty and just wanted to be helpful. Also, even though the park is less than a half mile from the interstate, it was very quiet. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Gore Creek Campground - USFS, Vail, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

There is no water, so bring your own. There are a few campsites right by the river, which provided a nice white noise. But you can hear the interstate from the campsites not by the river. Do not take a trailer into the upper loop -- there is no sign warning you not to do so, and there is no room to turn around. We camped at Gore Creek Campground - USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Timber Creek Campground (NPS Campground), Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

No trees -- beetles killed them all. Not pretty, and there was little privacy between sites. But views of surrounding mountains were very good as a result, and stars at night were great for the same reason. We camped at Timber Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground is conveniently located but is kind of dusty and semi-suburban, with some vacation homes nearby. Good views of the mountains. The management is excellent -- Zenda and Kay are currently (as of 2015) running things for the town of Estes Park and are cheerful, efficient, helpful, and competent. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Kodachrome Basin State Park, Cannonville, Utah

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Amazing stars at night. Great hikes in the park and nearby, especially if you have 4 wheel drive. Very peaceful. Cold nights in late fall, which we liked. Terrific staff -- the ranger was very knowledgeable and helpful. Bryce is only about 45 minutes away. The campground is right in the middle of terrific scenery -- wonderful sunrises and sunsets. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Coleville/Walker KOA (formerly Meadowcliff Lodge & RV Resort), Coleville, California

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Very well managed and maintained. Quiet - it is a little way off the highway. My wife enjoyed the pool - too cool for me. Pretty surroundings, too. Fine for an overnight, and it would be good for a longer stay if you like to fish - the river is right nearby. We camped at Coleville/Walker KOA (formerly Meadowcliff Lodge & RV Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

Bellingham RV Park, Bellingham, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Not a resort, but great for an overnight--well-located, little or no freeway noise, well-managed. Excellent laundry facilities, good shopping right nearby (Fred Meyer). In the right season, there are blackberry bushes on the south side of the park--delicious! We camped at Bellingham RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Golden Rule RV Park, Willits, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Great laundry facilities. Yes, you can hear the highway a little if you sit outside, but not from inside your rig. Wifi works great in the laundry room. Be sure to call ahead and get instructions -- easy to miss the turnoff from 101. We will return when we are in the area. To me, this is not a destination resort, but it is a good overnight stop. We camped at Golden Rule RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Jackson Demonstration State Forest, Fort Bragg, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Very remote -- this is really like boondocking. No facilities at all. Six miles from Ft. Bragg, but it takes a really long time to get there, due to the bumpy narrow dirt access roads. Not a convenient place to stay if you want to be close to the tourist attractions of the Mendocino coast. Campsites are very large and spread out, sited under large second growth redwoods. Some sites have outhouses and trash barrels, but the best bet is to be self-contained. There are some picnic tables and firepits. Gathering downed wood is permitted. If you like silence and isolation, this is your place. Also, good mountain biking on the fire roads running through the forest. We camped at Jackson Demonstration State Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground, Orick, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Great place -- agree with prior reviews. Quiet, green, lush trees and bushes. But do not bring a big rig here -- very narrow roads, low branches, small campsites. Also, campsites can be very muddy -- bring something to wipe your feet on, like an astroturf mat. We camped at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park - Elk Prairie Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Albee Creek Campground, Weott, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00

Agree with prior reviews -- great place, shady, quiet, off the beaten path. Do not bring a big rig here -- narrow roads, low branches, tight corners and campsites. Small trailers or motorhomes will do just fine. We camped at Albee Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Kelly's Family Campground, & RV Park,, Upper Lake, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

It’s great for what it is – very rustic, off the beaten path. We used it as an overnight stop on our way from Southern California to the coastal redwoods. No traffic noise at all – it’s about a mile off Highway 20. The back-in sites next to the creek were quite large. The sites were level with a dirt surface – probably gets muddy in wet weather, but we had no problem. The management was very accommodating and pleasant. We camped at Kelly's Family Campground, & RV Park, in a Travel Trailer.
