Red Rock Park, Churchrock, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Nestled in a lovely south-facing red rock canyon, this campground is a jewel for those headed east or west on I-40, which is only about 1 mile away. Train tracks are about 1/2 mile away, but with the windows closed I couldn't hear the trains. I took 1 star off because with windows open one might be able to hear the trains at night. Sites have water and electric, are well-spaced, and are reasonably level. Campground is grass and sand, and not a speck of trash anywhere. Restrooms were clean, with soap and paper towel dispensers and large showers. Very friendly and polite staff. We were touring the museum and rain was threatening, and several of the campground staff offered to give us a ride back to our RV when we finished seeing the museum. Please do not miss the fine museum, which is only about a 5 minute walk from the campground. Nice sand art paintings, excellent large wood carvings, fine southwest jewelry, baskets, pottery, early stone and clay utensils, etc. It is rare that one finds a campground as nice as this, as inexpensive, so close to an interstate, and with so much to offer for the overnight traveler. We camped at Red Rock Park in a Motorhome.

Snow Canyon State Park, St George, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Snow Canyon SP north of St. George, Utah. Water and electric sites are $20, paved, and are lined up side-by-side with just enough room to put the slides out. Dry camping sites are $16, well-spaced, level, and have privacy due to trees and shrubs. Beautiful views of the gorgeous state park from both types of sites, however. Cell phone reception basically non-existent at the campground, but a weak and useable signal for both AT&T and Verizon was available at various points towards the northern end of the park. As others have mentioned, the NON-hookup sites are much prettier and have nice spacing between sites. I would have foregone the hookup (and saved $4!) if one on those had been available, but unfortunately they were all taken when I got there. I'd probably give a Rating of 8 for the non-hookup sites. But regardless of which type of site you stay in, the park itself is gorgeous, with terrific hiking trails and also nice paved bike paths. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Cathedral Gorge State Park, Panaca, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

$17 gets you a few threaded faucets, flush toilets, showers, well-spaced sites, a few trees here and there, and a rather nice view. There is also a dump station on the way out on the access road. We camped at Cathedral Gorge State Park in a Motorhome.

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

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

Two beautiful campgrounds, both set among towering red rock formations. Arch Rock is dry camping only, with pit toilets and unthreaded water faucets scattered throughout the widely-spaced, mostly-level sites, some of which can accommodate big rigs. Atlatl Rock has both dry sites and water-electric sites, flush toilets and showers. Campsites are $20 for dry, $30 for water-electric, and include admission to park ($10 fee if not camping) which has many scenic rock formations to tour. Some areas of the park have weak, but generally adequate, cell phone reception for both AT&T and Verizon, but reception at either of the two campgrounds is generally non-existent. A very pretty state park, and well worth a day or two of exploring. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Owl Canyon Campground, Barstow, California

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $3.00
Overall Rating:      

Owl Canyon BLM campground, north of Barstow, CA. Widely separated, and mostly level, dirt campsites in a pretty little canyon. Rate listed was for a senior discount. No hookups, but trash receptacles, a couple of unthreaded water spigots, and several clean pit toilets. Big rig accessible, but the dirt road leading to the campground is very washboarded, so it is slow going. Beautiful view of the mountain range to the south at sunset. Extremely quiet and peaceful area. Nice. We camped at Owl Canyon Campground in a Motorhome.

Casa Grande RV Resort , Casa Grande, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Full hookups for only $17 with a Good Sam membership, otherwise $20. Other clubs are honored also, I believe. Campsites very clean, all are level, the showers in the restrooms were huge and nicely tiled, and the area is quiet. Two pools, large dining area for clubs or rallies or snow birds. Four 9 foot pool tables, and a very extensive paperback book lending library for long-stay folks. Staff was helpful and polite. We were there prior to the arrival of the snowbirds, so there were lots of sites available. We camped at Casa Grande RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lester Jackson Park, Pie Town, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This charming (and free) little campground offers quiet sites nestled among pine and spruce trees, and is located on the south side of Route 60 in "downtown" Pie Town. Sites are level, and there is a threaded water spigot available, but that's it. No toilets, electricity, or trash dumpsters. But the price is certainly right, the camping is quiet and there is plenty of room between sites. Big rigs or larger 5th wheels or trailers won't fit. My rig is 25 foot and it fit just fine, but I'd say that's about the upper limit. No gasoline or diesel in town, so come prepared. We camped at Lester Jackson Park in a Motorhome.

Old Post Road COE, Russellville, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects senior 50% discount. Sites are level, well-spaced and the park was quiet. Some sites nicely shaded, others not quite so much. Cellphone reception was adequate (AT&T) but no over-air TV reception due to fairly heavy tree coverage in the park. Nice views of barges going up and down the river, and the lock and dam was within easy walking distance, so we got to see the lock gates opening up and a barge and tug just starting to come out of the lock. Fun! We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Motorhome.

Kartchner Caverns State Park, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $71.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects rate for 1 night camping and cave tour admission for 2 people. Sites are paved, level, and well-spaced. Bathroom clean. Cave tour is great, and it's an easy walk from the campsite to the cave tour/visitor center area. We camped at Kartchner Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Leasburg Dam State Park, Radium Springs, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are level, well-spaced, and quiet. Water and electric hookup, dump station available. Bathroom is clean. The area is scruffy, as is typical of that part of New Mexico. But it's still a nice campground and is only a short distance off of Interstate 25. We camped at Leasburg Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are level, well-spaced, and some of them have decent shade from bushes. Water and electric hookup, dump station available. Bathroom was clean. It's about a 12 mile drive on Highway 380, to the east, from Roswell, but you are rewarded by a nice quiet campground with decent scenery. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.
