Park was packed when we were there because it was a big Canadian holiday. Spaces are close together and, in my view, a little trashy. WiFi was very good, strong signal and pretty fast. There is some noise from trains across the road as it is the main E-W rail line. Lots of things to do around here.

Date of Stay:

Basic no hookup sites. Level sights with adequate spacing between them. Heavily forested cover so no satellite connectivity. Trash bins in our loop were full and we had to go to another loop to dump trash. Many sites were reserved but unused. This is the first time I have seen this. If you are driving along very beautiful route 20 this is a good place to stay. There are boat tours on Diablo lake operated by Skagit Tours but you need reservations very far in advance.

Stayed here to take Killgore's jet boat ride Through Hell's Canyon. Killgore's is a family owned business and they do a very nice job and the jet boat trip was very enjoyable and highly recommended. To make it convenient for their jet boat customers they have a small motel and RV park in White Bird. The RV park is essentially a gravel lot with hookups. A few spots are under trees with grass. Unfortunately, the trees will block your satellite dish. So, it is either stay in the shade with no TV or out in the open with reception. Park has wifi that worked okay. Park is also on the banks of the Snake River.

Stayed in Arco to visit Craters of the Moon NM. The campground in the park is very barren, as would be expected, with no services and it can get pretty warm there. If you want hookups you need to go to Arco. Nice park although some of the spots are short. The staff was excellent and they have a small cafe that serves up some very tasty dishes. We were able to position our rig so that the satellite dish got connected. Some highway noise but there wasn't much traffic at night. Lawn sprinklers will water your rig so make sure storage compartments are tightly closed.

Nice park out in the middle of nowhere. Spacious sights and reasonably level. Facility has pit toilets which we did not need to use and pumped water spigots. Close to the river and the hot springs are interesting. If you are passing through this very beautiful country and need a place to camp this is a good spot.

Park is 25 miles south of Jacob's Lake and about 18 miles to the North Rim Lodge. Typical NFS campground. Host was very pleasant and helpful. A few of the sites are big enough for a large RV. We stayed in site 13 and I could of easily parked a 40 ft rig on that site. Some of sites are not very level and some sites are pretty small. We were there on the weekend and the campground was full by mid afternoon. Half the sites are can be reserved and the other half are first come first served.

Date of Stay:

Nice KOA campground. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Roads and sites are gravel and spaces are adequate and typical of what you find in KOAs. There are a lot of permanent rigs but they are well kept and do not detract from the park. After checking out the Ely area if you want a camping site with hookups this is the best choice IMHO.

Date of Stay:

This is the nicest of the 3 campgrounds on Wheeler peak rd. Sites are paved and some are not very level. There are some sites big enough for a medium (say 32ft) RV. The biggest issue with this campground is that it is up a 12 mile winding road that rises about 3500 feet from the valley floor. There are some tight turns on the way up but nothing that was a problem for my 26ft coach towing a small SUV. There are several really nice hiking trails from this campground.

Date of Stay:

If you are visiting Great Basin NP and want hook ups there are two choices and this is the better of the two. Basically a gravel parking lot with full hookups behind a gas station and a small casino. Has WiFi but is so slow that it is basically useless. Office folks were pleasant and the rate is pretty low. The food in the cafe inside the casino is okay.

Date of Stay:

Campground is about 4 miles west of Estes Park and is smaller than Moraine CG. I find this CG to be much cooler and less dusty than Moraine. Standard NP non-electric campsites.

Date of Stay:

Really pretty State Park and the Lakeview CG has some really nice views. Although there are no big trees in the CG many sites have large covered ramadas. I wouldn't hesitate to camp here again.

We travel through this area many times a year and always stay at this park. Very friendly staff, clean park, and Blanding has all the necessary services. When entering the park make sure you use the entrance on the north side of the park, as it is much easier for long rigs. Park doesn't have a pool or TV otherwise it would get a 10.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground right next to the Colorado river and the Colorado National Monument (make sure to take the rim drive). Campsites are large and well separated. Each site has a shade cover. The park is close to I-70 but I did not notice any significant road noise. If you are traveling through the Grand Junction area you can't beat this park. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a small campground but adequately equipped and well maintained. Staff was helpful and friendly. Sites are of adequate size and many have a nice grassy area (watch out for sprinklers). Water pressure can be high (which they warn you about) so make sure that you use a pressure regulator. The campground does not have a store but there is a market about a mile North of the campground. I have stayed at this campground many times on my travels through Utah and will stay here again.
