We stayed here on our way to Santa Fe. The road up from Rt 40 is very tight for a big rig just before you get to the park. Go slow, gear down, and use the entire road. The park is definitely secluded. It is right on the Pecos river and has some neat hiking. The interior roads are mostly paved. There are electric sites, but all must be reserved. Most are not pull thru. Our site 20B, is reservable, but has no power. However, it was one of the only pull thrus. All sites have a wind shelter. The wind is pretty strong in the canyon and the tent campers were setting up inside the shelters. We prefer non commercial parks. This fit our needs wonderfully.

Juniper Campground is located just inside the main entrance to Bandelier National Monument. The road from White Rock looks scary on the map, but it was actually very easy in our 39' motor home with a toad. It's better than going through an inspection in Los Alamos. All interior roads and sites are paved and easy for big rigs. The first Loop has a few sites for larger rigs. Look for sites 6, 9, 10, or 17. 9 is a pull thru but unlevel. B Loop has almost no sites for a big rig, but several for smaller RVs. C Loop has about 8 larger sites. 55 is the only level pull thru. The rest are all back-in. The campground is very clean and you self register at the kiosk. The hosts are friendly and helpful. Firewood is available by the host site. There is lots of hiking in the park, and a visit to the ruins is a must. We also really enjoyed Tsankawi, which is a small section just before White Rock. Very different from the main area and worth the effort. Lots of people Hike down the Frey Trail to the ruins and the visitor center, then take the shuttle back. Starting mid-May, you have to take the shuttle down. We had weak cellular wireless, both ATT and Verizon, about 2 bars at most, and that was only with our Weboost booster. Without a booster, we had no signal on ATT or Verizon. However, both Los Alamos and White Rick have towers and free Wifi locations. The Smiths grocery store in Los Alamos is fabulous. Huge store, like a super Walmart but with a much better grocery section. Definitely worth a stop. We did drive further up Rt 4 in our toad, and it gets a bit hairy as you climb into the Jemez mountains. Big rigs would need the entire road in sections and even then could get into trouble on the switchbacks.

We stayed for an overnight in a 39'coach with toad. Very close to I-94/90 with easy access but no road noise. Very friendly owners who were easy to get along with even though we arrived about 9PM. They directed us straight to the site and just told us to come to the office in the morning and pay. Our site was fairly level and a tree blocked our satellite. However, lots of channels on TV. Some sites were less level. Decent spacing, but not great. Full hookups and the water tasted fine. Good ATT and Verizon reception. This location advertises as an adult park, with no amenities for the kids. Kids are expected to be kept on a tight leash and they would just as soon campers with kids look to the Yogi Bear type parks which are in abundance in the area. Works for me! Adult does not mean get crazy wild and drunk. Very well maintained. I watched the owner mow the same area 3 times, and it didn't need mowing to begin with. We will definitely visit again and would gladly utilize this for either a base for local exploration or as an overnight.

This little park is right beside the interstate, making a great overnight stop. We were rolling through and needed a place to plug in, since the temp was pretty hot. The manager met us at the gate, which was just a short 1/4 mile off of the interstate. Easy pull through with full hookups and plenty of room to keep the toad connected. We only hooked up to the 50 amp power. The site was level. The grounds were clean and well kept. Although close to the interstate, we noticed no road noise, but we tend to tune that out anyway. No trains. Great 5 bar verizon. Great Satellite and several channels on the TV. No trees, open terrain. Sites were close, but adequate without any difficulty. For an overnight, this was just great. We stayed here in a 39' motorhome with a toad. It was very easy to get in and just as easy to get out. We often pass through I64 and need an overnight. We will definitely visit again. No other amenities that we noticed, but we also didn't look.

A short 1/2 kilometer drive from Rt 16. This free park is one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed in and is completely free. 7 completely level, gravel, pull-throughs about 90 feet long, all facing the lake, with 3 back-ins. No trees, completely open. Immaculately clean and manicured. Two flush restrooms, but no hookups, no water, and no dump. Lakefront with a swimming beach. 2 night maximum. If you are looking for an overnight on 16, you are making a huge mistake if you pass this by. We stayed here in a 39 foot rig.

This is a very nice municipal park in the heart of Opelousas. The other reviews describe it well. Water and electric is included. Here seem to be a mix of 30 amp and 50 amp boxes. We stayed in section D, which is adjacent to a little ball park on the left as you enter. These are all back in sites on grass. In April, there were about 5 campers total so we had our pick. I would definitely stay here again, particularly if I needed to be in Opelousas for any reason. This is about 2 miles from the interstate. Good Att and Verizon. Water tastes great. The entry roads are a bit tight, but we got our 39' motor home in without difficulty. The park is active, with nearby lighted tennis courts and baseball fields.

This is state park with a small lake, along with 22 back-in camping spots with electric and water. Cost is $18 per night with electric or $13 without, paid at an honor box. A fishing license adds $5. This great little site is easily accessible by a big rig, just a mile off the interstate. No amenities other than the lake. However, this is a great overnight or multi-day spot. Sites are grass. We enjoyed our stay and would return. We stayed in a 39 foot rig. 5 bars on AT&T .

Fullerton Lake Campground is about 18 miles from Leesville. The sites are spacious and easily accommodated our 39' RV. There is a small lake directly beside the campground and there were several fisherman present. This is a secluded campground, typical NFS. It was a bit far from Leesville.

Rocky Springs is a smaller NPS park directly on the Natchez Trace Parkway. We camped in the unused Host Site, but there were about 5 or 6 sites that could have accommodated our 39' RV. Many other sites for smaller campers or motor homes. The initial entry sites are the most level. If you see one you like in the first 10 or so, grab it. The rest are up on the hill, not as level. There was lots of room to maneuver our RV through the campground. The restrooms were clean, as were the sites, even though no host was present. No AT&T or Verizon coverage. Most sites are wooded and only a few had a satellite view. Best of all, its free. What's not to like! We would definitely stay here again.

Don't be scared to come into this campground in your motor home. We circled the entire camp in our 39' pulling a toad without a problem. There are many pull through sites, some are a bit tight for slides, but many are fine. All are paved and mostly level. We biked over to the Meriweather Lewis grave site. There were at least half a dozen large motor homes there. ATT and Verizon were 1-2 bars. No satellite due to trees and no TV reception. But it was very clean and best of all, totally free. No hookups or dump station, but there were water spigots near some sites. I would not hesitate to return and it's great if visiting the Trace.

We like primitive campgrounds. Sage Creek is in the prairie section of the Badlands. There were numerous buffalo on the entry road and they can walk through the campground. Sage Creek is definitely accessible by big rigs, but there are only 2 or 3 sites that can accommodate them. All were available when we came in. Like Cedar Creek, the sites are simply pull offs to the side of the loop road, so your slide outs stick out towards the road. I could not find much information on this campground and its suitability for big rigs, so I had to check it out myself and stayed at Cedar Creek first. The road to Sage Creek is dirt, but is wide and not too rough. Locals told us 18 wheelers use it. If you don't need power, like primitive, and are self sufficient for power and water, don't overlook this one. We would stay here again, but its what we like and the price is right (free). There is no shade, sites are level. No cell or internet. We had no problems maneuvering our 39' RV with a toad.

Rate reflects PA discount. The location is convenient to town, just a few miles out. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The site was level and a pull through. WiFi was strong. Verizon signal was weak. There was a pool and play area, which was closed for the season, but looked nice enough. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for an overnight. Its 5 or 6 miles from the interstate, but is easy to get to. This is a large field divided into lots of sites, and is part of the fairgrounds. Most are level, but not all. We had our pick, since there were only 2 other campers, and effectively had a pull through. Each site has 30amp power and water. Satellite was great. Verizon and ATT both very strong with good Verizon 4G. This was great for an overnight and would be great for the fair. I doubt that it gets very full when the fair is not on. We would stay here again if passing through.

This campground is very convenient to the interstate. We stayed for an overnight in the non-electric area. Rates are $10 for non-electric, $20 for electric, with 1/2 off for seniors on weekdays. All sites were level, non-electric are grass, electric are gravel. There was nice separation, typical of state parks. We had good satellite but most sites are shaded and will probably not have good satellite. Verizon was weak 1-2 bars with slow internet. We really liked this park. It has bike paths, hiking paths, fishing, and lots of deer and geese. The hosts were friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Mammoth is at the north entrance and is first come first served, no reservations. Even in the shoulder season of September, it has filled everyday by noon or earlier. It is much more open than we expected, with lots of lower height trees, but not a high canopy. Many sites easily accommodate big rigs and we had good solar generation plus dish satellite reception in site 12. Sites have good separation and lots of room for slideouts. We later drove through Slough Creek and Pebble Creek campgrounds. Both are much smaller, fill rapidly, and have only a couple of suitable big rig sites ( site 1 in Slough Creek is fantastic). This means if you want a sure space for your big rig, you are better off getting in early to Mammoth or reserve at another. As NSP campgrounds go, Mammoth is great. We stayed here for 3 nights in a 39' motorhome. Be aware, no dump station, come in with empty tanks or drive to the Yellowstone RV park in Gardiner and pay $6. Good Verizon phone, spotty 1-2 bar 3G. No AT&T reception. Good Verizon Internet at the top of the hill at the Visitor center. We would definitely stay here again. No electric, but water was available at our site with a threaded connection, you just can't stay connected.
