Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This place seems overpriced, although it does have cable. Great red rock views all around. We didn't even bother with the crowded national parks, and just enjoyed the red rocks from the campground. Looks like a pool and spa is being constructed right now.

There is a strange division between the rich "resort" side of the park and the poor "campground" side of the park. You are not allowed to use pool at the resort side if you're on the campground side. Paved sites available on the resort side. The only complaint I have about this place is the price.

Nice dog park in the back of park with great views. Also a swimming pond for humans, and one for dogs. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

James M. Robb - Colorado River State Park / Island Acres Section, Palisade, Colorado

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

To clarify, this is the James M. Robb park in Palisades. There is another campground by the same name in Fruita. This park is located in a canyon, which makes for great scenery, but terrible to non-exsistant cell/internet/tv reception. Camped here in early November. All water shut off and no water available at dump station. Sewer at the dump station was even locked up. Vault toilets only this time of year. Convenient 15 minute drive to Grand Junction.

We were the only camper here, and it was a little scary as the neighborhood seemed a little sketchy. Boarded up restaurants across the street. Register yourself if no one is there. You will need an $8 day pass for each vehicle in addition to the camping fee. We camped at James M. Robb - Colorado River State Park / Island Acres Section in a Fifth Wheel.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Seems like a good deal at first (only $24 a night) but then they want to charge a day use for each vehicle or RV coming into the park. It is $8 per day per vehicle. (Motorhome and toad $16 a day. Fifth wheel and truck $8) We ended up buying annual Colorado passes for both vehicles since we were there 2 weeks. We have a 37 ft fifth wheel, and I believe we would have fit in any of the sites. They are all nice and long. Except for the A loop which seems more cramped. D loop is full hook up. C loop has nice views, but no sewer. Restrooms and laundry very nice. Keep in mind the brilliant state park system does not let you check in, or change sites until after 1pm. There will be a line forming at 1pm. An overflow lot is available if you get there early. Although the park is in town, allow 10 minutes to drive in/out of the park, its huge. We camped at Chatfield State Park in a Motorhome.

Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area, Papillion, Nebraska

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful park and lake. Slabs are 50 ft long for RV's and tents. It was Memorial Day weekend, and we luckily got one of the last spots. When you arrive, register with the camp host, they take cash or check only. No showers. Grass and small trees to separate the sites, but there are no low lying branches to scrape against. The park is in a nice/newer area of town with shopping. Gates close at 10 pm so hopefully you don't have any plans to go out to dinner or see a movie while you're in Omaha. We camped at Walnut Creek Lake & Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Lake Havasu State Park, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet park right in Lake Havasu. Sites are very level, lots of space between sites. You need to reserve early online as this place is usually full. If you are really lucky you can get a waterfront site that a private campground would charge you $90 for, but here the state park system is only charging you $35. Large white sand beach is the center of the park. No dogs allowed at the beach. Be prepared to get killed by mosquitos in the evenings especially near the lake. You will also enjoy nice shady trails and cactus garden. Every time you go in and out of the park, be prepared to wait behind others who are checking in, or getting a day pass. The biggest surprise to me was the size of the parking lot for boat trailer parking. It is the size of probably 3 walmart parking lots. Also remember as a courtesy to others, and only reserve a site length that is necessary for your camper. We saw 3 ft. long campers, and even tents using a 55 ft site when shorter sites were available. Large RV's can't get a reservation if small campers are using the long sites. We camped at Lake Havasu State Park in a Motorhome.

Campbell Cove RV Resort, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is close to the lake, on a hill, but there is no water access. We were camped around the outer edge so we had a nice site with a view of the lake. There are other buildings between you and the lake so it is not a direct view. The interior sites however look very sandwiched in. Small pool and spa. The small dog park is more of a dog cage. My dog just sat in there and looked at me. Clean park. We camped at Campbell Cove RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Havasu Springs Resort, Parker, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here after listening to a sales presentation. Location is far from Lake Havasu, and far from shopping. Did not visit the bar or restaurant. Salespeople are deceptive, did not purchase the membership. The $200 free gift they promise is a junk $30 tablet which I have no use for. Sites are not long enough, our 40 ft. motorhome stuck way out into the road, even though they assured us their sites are long enough. We ended up choosing and lakeview site. It is a further walk to the lake, but we did get some cell service up there. It is quite dusty and windy, and pedestals appear to have deferred maintenance. Pool and spa were nice. We camped at Havasu Springs Resort in a Motorhome.

South Park Mobile Home Park (55+ park), Englewood, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

If you need to be right in Denver, this is the park for you. Traffic was a little intense getting here, and backing in was strange. Their monthly sites are scattered throughout the park and are former mobile home lots. So backing in you will need to straddle the water and sewer connections, then crawl under the RV to hook them up. The short term sites however, are much easier and nicer. Wi-Fi doesn't work, and clubhouse is under construction. Laundry room is nice, and cheap. Free day old bread from Panera Bread every Tuesday. This is the first campground I've been to where every site has their own mailbox in front of it. Although this is a 55+park, they let us stay by the month. It is surprisingly quiet. No dogs allowed. Checks only. We camped at South Park Mobile Home Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Camp A Way, Lincoln, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a pretty park, in fact the only RV park in Lincoln. So, they can charge whatever they want! The place is not a dump. Get a site towards the back, you'll enjoy yourself more than the sites next to the office. Lovely shade trees, all campers kept up nice, friendly service. We stayed during the off season, so although the pool is closed, there is a small indoor hot tub they don't even tell you about at check-in. That was the highlight for us. Just a few minutes drive from downtown Lincoln. (Don't miss the capital tour.) The wi-fi is excellent; many antennas throughout the park, as well as cable tv. Overall, a comfortable stop, so we will be back. You can even order a crappy frozen pizza from the office for $10 and they'll deliver it to your site. Beware, during the college football games the price goes UP. We camped at Camp A Way in a Motorhome.

Foxfire Campground, Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Surprised to be the first reviewer of the park as it has been in business for 50 years. Park is mostly seasonal campers with a few sites left for shorter stays. It does get loud in the evenings around the campfires, but that is just the atmosphere of the park. Difficult to get cell/internet/tv reception here. Coin-op showers! There are two small lakes you can walk to from the campground for swimming/fishing. Hookups are quite dated and only 30 amp. Our biggest problem here was water quality. It is extremely rusty, and you will need to get an additional water filtration/softener of some sort to avoid problems. Convenient location, and the best coffee shop in town is next door. We camped at Foxfire Campground in a Motorhome.

Country Roads Motorhome & RV Park, Lake Delton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Nightly rate reflects price paid for a month and includes electric. The park is very clean and organized, the lawn mowers are going constantly. Nice gravel roads, and this is the best bet in the area that I know of for big rigs. I rate it a 10 because of the value, and convenient location. On the downside, the Wi-Fi barely worked the 2 months we were here, poor TV reception, and no pool. The park is very, very quiet even when fully occupied. There are very few kids here, although they do have a playground. A nice laundry room available. We camped at Country Roads Motorhome & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a great deal! They are currently spending a fortune on landscape/rockscape, so the park actually looks better. Plenty of pull thrus available, although they could be a bit longer. Nice mountain views, very quiet, easy drive to town. Cash or check only. Best deal in the area, hurry and get here before the rates go up. Cute little cabins available too. We camped at Paradise RV and Mobile Home Park in a Motorhome.

Lone Rock Beach - (NPS), Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are taking an RV here, be sure to clarify the best road to the beach, as we saw many many people getting stuck in the sand (stay to the far left on the way down). A better alternative for us, was parking up top by the dump station. There are nice views, and although no hook-ups, it is only $10 a night. A 15 minute drive to town, and remember you are in Utah's time zone. I didn't see any "showers" here except for the cold outdoor ones for rinsing sand. We camped at Lone Rock Beach - (NPS) in a Motorhome.

Wahweap RV and Campground, Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We had been wanting to stay here for a long time. Concrete slabs with views of Lake Powell from most sites. There are small pickers everywhere here so do not walk in the gravel/bushes. We got 2 flat bike tires immediately, so add that into the cost of the already outrageous $48 a night. There is laundry onsite, but it is packed constantly. Had to wait til 2am to get in. They had a lot of empty sites here, probably due to the high price point. I feel they are about $10 overpriced, which is why Walmart parking lot is full, and they are not. WiFi didn't work. You do get access to the pool at the hotel a few miles away. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Cameron Trading Post RV Park, Cameron, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Very basic campground, but easy enough to get in/out with pull thrus. Simply drive in and pick a site, then walk across the street to the gift shop to pay. The gift shop is huge, and you absolutely must try the Navajo tacos and the Navajo stew they serve at the restaurant. Very authentic fry bread fluffy and crispy served with warm honey. Great stop for a day trip to the south rim. Could not get any internet/cell reception with our devices. They observe the same time zone as Arizona, although on Navajo land. We'll be back for the tacos even if we don't stay overnight again. We camped at Cameron Trading Post RV Park in a Motorhome.
