WillowWind RV Park, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Attractive, well-shaded, and fairly good spacing between sites. Full hookups and good Wi-Fi. Pads are all paved or concrete, but some of the pads are rather narrow, so you may have to take care to center the rig as you park. Clean restrooms, good showers. It's about a half hour drive over to Springdale, where you can park and catch a free shuttle that takes you to the Zion National Park entrance. After entering the Park (a short walk from the Springdale shuttle) you can then ride the free park shuttle to whatever park highlights you wish to see. Very convenient! We camped at WillowWind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sunset Campground (NPS Campground), Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet campground, with sites well-spaced. Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but unthreaded water spigots are available. Free Wi-Fi available at three nearby places: the lodge, the general store and the visitor center. Handy free shuttle bus takes you wherever you want to go in the Canyon, with a bus stop within easy walking distance of the campground. We camped at Sunset Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Fruita Campground (NPS Campground), Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects senior discount. Sites paved and mostly level. Sites are first-come, first-served, and the campground tended to fill by around noon. Dry camping, but water spigots available. Restrooms were clean. All the beautiful sights of Capitol Reef are only minutes away by car. We camped at Fruita Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but with water spigots scattered throughout campground. Sites are nicely spaced and with good foliage in between. Pit toilets were clean. Interesting petroglyphs can be seen on a nearby rock wall. We camped at Sand Island Recreation Area (BLM) in a Motorhome.

Riana Abiquiu Lake COE, Abiquiu, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects senior discount, but was for a water and electric site and with a terrific view of the reservoir and the distant mountains. Probably the prettiest view I have ever seen at any COE campground. Bathhouse has flush toilets and nice showers. The drive west from the campground, on Route 96 over to Route 550, is quite pretty, but one which those with really big RVs or trailers may want to avoid. We camped at Riana Abiquiu Lake COE in a Motorhome.

Forest Park, Lamesa, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We parked our RV in the driveway of relatives in Lamesa, so we didn't actually camp here, but we drove to the campground and confirmed that there are electrical hookups at each site. There is a sewer dump, a trash container, and there is also a water spigot. No toilet facility however. Our relative who drove us by the site told us the park was often full of RVs, but there were none the day we drove by. It is in a nice part of town, surrounded by pretty park land. Review entry form doesn't allow entering $0, but the campsites are free nonetheless. We camped at Forest Park in a Motorhome.

Doris Campground, Lawton, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects Golden Age Passport 1/2 price discount. This popular campground has lots of campsites, most of which are level and well-spaced. There are a limited number of electrical hookup sites however, so you should be prepared to possibly dry camp upon arrival. Plenty of water spigots scattered throughout the campground areas, so fill your tanks before heading to your individual site. We saw a herd of 11 deer and a herd of 9 turkey stroll right through the campsite, and there were plenty of buffalo, large-racked elk, and long horn cattle to be seen from the roads in the park. Beautiful view from the top of Mt. Scott, and lots of gorgeous rock scenery everywhere in the park. This is a park we want to visit again so we can explore it more thoroughly and hike some of the trails. We camped at Doris Campground in a Motorhome.

Molly Brown, Leadville, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $18. No hookups, but unthreaded water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Flush toilets and sinks in the bathrooms, no showers. Camp host said the campground will be converted to pit toilets only next year, which is unfortunate. Oh well. Sites are very well spaced and almost all are level. There were plenty of nice vacant sites to choose from mid-week, but almost every site was reserved for the weekend, so plan accordingly. We camped at Molly Brown in a Motorhome.

Red Rock Canyon State Park, Hinton, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects senior discount, else it would have been $20. Level sites, well-spaced, with water and 30 and 50 amp electric. Dump stations available, only 3 sites have sewer hookups. Very pretty campground down in a long, narrow canyon. Bathrooms were clean. Individual showers and changing rooms are provided, with coin-operated showers, 50 cents for first 3 minutes, 25 cents for each additional 1 and 1/2 minutes. No WiFi, but good cellphone and TV reception, about 15 channels, which surprised me for being down in a canyon. Lots of greenery in the canyon, and pretty red rock walls in places. We camped at Red Rock Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

NRA Whittington Center Campground, Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the first RV park I have ever visited, which offers a 360 degree panorama view, right from the campground. And it is a stunning view indeed, with nearby mountains to the west and north, and vistas over a huge plain to the east and south to more distant mountains. I could see Capulin Volcano, which is about 25 miles to the east. Campground elevation is 6500 feet. There are 117 full hookup RV sites total, in two campgrounds, and even the largest of rigs can easily be accommodated, but only 30 amp service, no 50 amp. Bathrooms were very spacious and clean, and each shower had an attached changing area. I don't know how big the entire NRA area is (there are many firing ranges as part of the center, but they are quite some distance from the two RV campgrounds), but I would estimate the total area to be hundreds of acres, perhaps thousands. Cellphone reception was excellent, and I was able to get 9 over-air channels on the TV in my rig. The host at the check-in said the campground never fills, but they do take reservations if one has a particular site they like. The Center is 10 miles south of Raton, on Highway 64, but the campground is maybe 1 mile in from the highway, so it is very quiet. You do not have to be an NRA member to camp here. I rarely give 10 star ratings, but this place earned it. We camped at NRA Whittington Center Campground in a Motorhome.

Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

About a 30 minute drive south of downtown Colorado Springs, but unlike many of the RV parks here, you have a bit of breathing room between the sites, whereas some of the parks right in Colorado Springs have the rigs packed in like sardines. Full hookups, and sites were level. Bathrooms snug, but clean. Quite a few deer, including 3 young bucks, roaming the campground. We camped at Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects $26 camping fee plus daily $9 "entrance" fee. Full hookups, level sites, well-spaced. Bathrooms clean, but with pay showers, which I thought was kind of chintzy, given the rather high total fee. Great park for bike riding (lots of paved bike paths) and it is level and about 4,000 acres total, including a rather large lake. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Morefield Campground (NPS), Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects senior discount for no-hookup sites, which are normally $28. Full hookup sites are $38, no senior discount available for those. Sites are well-spaced, but not all are level, and some are too short for RV's over 20 feet or so. There were plenty of sites to choose from for rigs 30 feet or less, however all 15 full-hookup sites were taken. Dump station has fresh water, but no threaded connector. Threaded spigots inside the bathrooms, so we filled our tanks there. Free showers and WiFi at the campground check-in building. We camped at Morefield Campground (NPS) in a Motorhome.
