Kodachrome Basin State Park, Cannonville, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This was one of the most beautiful campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Were so lucky to get last minute reservations for the July 4th weekend in a full-hookup site. Absolutely immaculate! The roads and sites are asphalt, plenty long enough for our 37 foot motorhome and Jeep Wrangler. The backdrop is the magnificent state park hoodoos and whimsical rock formations. The park rangers were wonderful and the drive into the park is gorgeous. Very close drive to Bryce Canyon. A must if you can get reservations here. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

Bryce Canyon very close by, as is the unimproved road through Escalante to Lake Powell. The small town of Tropic is close and there is a wonderful coffee shop there, as well as a great Mexican restaurant inside a little strip mall with grocery and ice cream shop. Believe it was called the Rustler.

Wonderland RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

So aptly named - a wonderful campground. Beautifully manicured with long, relatively level sites, trees and grass. The laundry is immaculate and inexpensive. Right at junction of Highway 12 and Rt 24. Minutes from Capitol Reef National Park.
Owners were friendly and always working around the park. We camped at Wonderland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park), Olathe, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is beautiful. Expected some trailers, etc., but was surprised to find a shady, grassy campground with long pull-thrus on concrete pads. They had happy hour outside the clubhouse and invited us to join. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Several full-timers were there for the summer, all with immaculate sites.
The owners obviously care a lot about this park and work hard to keep it beautiful. Wish we could stay longer than the 2 nights we have. Highly recommend. We camped at Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Prospector Hotel and Casino , Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a perfectly fine park to overnight in. You find a spot and park, then register in the hotel, first-come, first-served. We had a large pull-through site with good satellite reception and amazing antenna channel selection for the locale.

The lot is dirt and I imagine could get muddy easily in heavy rain. There is some road noise, but it slowed down considerably overnight.

The Mexican restaurant in the hotel/casino was pretty good and they do give complimentary margaritas and pool access to RV guest.

The front desk staff person was very friendly and accommodating.

Would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

Twin Falls 93 RV Park, Filer, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

New ownership is making improvements and planning to expand the number of sites in the park significantly.
Location is very convenient for seeing Thousand Springs Byway, Shoshone Falls, Perrine Bridge, etc.
The host, Jim, was absolutely delightful during our stay. Have not encountered hosts as caring and kind as he was very often. Made the stay better.
Not sure about other reviewers' experiences, but our wifi worked pretty well. Yes, there's some road noise, but wasn't bad at night. Satellite reception was good, and limited channels could be picked up on antenna.
It is true that the sewer connections for your neighbor are in an odd place, but our picnic table sat back on the site, and we had no trouble with smells when we sat out there. I would note that livestock haulers park their 18-wheelers on an adjacent road, and I believe the smell comes from there.
The laundry was exceptionally clean (as was the bathhouse) and very economical at $1.50/wash and $1.00/dryer.
I would stay here again. Paid $38 per night with GS. We camped at Twin Falls 93 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Park, Arco, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed our stay here. The park is very clean and well maintained, with improvements being made. The site we had was spacious, with no neighbors close-by. Hookups were convenient. Site was shaded. No satellite reception in our particular site, but a tree was in the way.
The restaurant on site is wonderful. We had sauteed shrimp and smoked baked potatoes that were delicious. Paid $36 nightly with Good Sam.
Would stay here again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Glacier Peaks RV Park, Columbia Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an older campground, but well maintained and nice touches. Paid $43.24 per night with military discount.
The sites are shaded, but we got good satellite reception as well as antenna. The sites are long pull-throughs with plenty of space for our 37' motorhome and tow car. We had rain during our stay, and there was no problem with mud or puddling. Laundry room is clean and reasonably priced.
Miss Helen made the stay more enjoyable. She is a delightful woman who owns the campground and goes out of her way to be friendly and engaging. She even gave us a container and some potting soil for a plant we had picked up on a drive outside of town.
A little pricey for the age of the place, but all in all, we enjoyed our stay there and would stay there again. We camped at Glacier Peaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Whitefish nearby. Jersey Boys Pizza is the real thing; went there twice! Hungry Horse Dam is interesting to visit.
Of course, Glacier NP is awesome. If your vehicle allows, by all means go to the Polebridge entrance and to Bowman Lake. This was one of the most picturesque sights in several days in the park. On the way, stop at Polebridge Mercantile for savory rolls (delish!) and huckleberry bear claws. Yes, they're worth the cost.

Conestoga Campground / Smith River Valley, White Sulphur Springs, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

A little oasis. We stayed overnight in this park on our way to Glacier NP. It was much nicer than expected, a little oasis after a mountainous drive. It is very clean and well maintained. Sites were plenty large, good satellite reception. The views are spectacular and allowed a gorgeous sunset view right through our front window. The campground hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Conestoga Campground / Smith River Valley in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa Campground, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed a week, using Cody as a base camp for several day trips. They will not give a weekly rate, Just a small Good Sam discount, so it was pricier than we expected. The sites on inner section are very close together. We were on outer perimeter, but close to highway. It was noisy and made worse by road work all week. The water, elec, and cable were on wrong side, and sewer at the back of the site. Was workable but inconvenient.
Staff were very friendly and laundry was nice and clean. Wifi was ok, better in morning and late at night.
Not sure I would choose this campground again. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Powered hang gliding over Cody was absolutely awesome. Brochures in campground office.
Prime rib at Irma's was very good. Rodeo is very enjoyable.
New indoor shooting range where you fire old time weapons was really fun despite the price, but there is senior and big military discount.

We stayed at Indian CG for 2 nights and wished as could stay longer. Harold and Katrina Anton, the owners, are wonderful. Harold saw our Jeep and recommended a canyon road to us that was fun and spectacular.
The sites are mostly shaded, good working utilities, plenty of space for our 37 ft motorhome and Jeep.
Highly recommend. We camped at Indian Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great campground. Lanna is wonderful and quite informative. Got to pick our site. Very clean and well maintained. Sites are plenty big .

By all means, do Spearfish Canyon. Gorgeous. Devils Tower is also easily reached from here. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Motorhome.

Beaver Lake Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Most of the sites are terraced, which is nice. Utilities are all grouped together. Cable included basic channels. Could not get satellite reception. The Wi-Fi was very spotty at best. Laundry room is clean, several newer machines and reasonably priced.
The owners and staff are always working around the campground. We were escorted to our site at check-in.

There is a pool and waterslide, and they have propane available.

Custer is a central location to see all the local sites. Nice little town that is not too commercialized. Fabulous chicken pot pie at Bobkats Purple Pie Place. Excellent desserts at Dakota Cowboy restaurant.
Would definitely stay again. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Camp Creek State Park, Camp Creek, West Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This state park is right off the interstate outside Bluefield, WV. We stopped here after visiting New River Gorge. The campground is small, but very clean with electric and water. I believe there were some full hookups as well. The staff person was very friendly and helpful.
The road around the campground was newly paved asphalt, with campsites arranged in a circular formation. They were not too close together, and lots of grassy areas around the sites. Very quiet and woodsy. Was a beautiful place to spend the night. We camped at Camp Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins, Farmington, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is closest to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, and also convenient for a day trip to Shanksville, PA and the Flight 93 Memorial.
The campground is in a beautiful wooded area away from main roads. Very close to multiple outdoor recreational activities and Ohiopyle State Park. There is a security gate which you need a code for, so the area is secure. There were a fair number of regular weekenders in travel trailers, but they were very friendly and engaging, and had helpful information about the area.
There is a decent camp store and a grill that served burgers and fries. We did not use the bathhouse or pool, but facilities seemed in good condition. The area was quiet and pleasant, except for a group of teens who played basketball in the late afternoon.
We had a very pleasant stay here and would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Benner's Meadow Run Camping & Cabins in a Motorhome.
