Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

A mostly quiet campground out in the countryside between Spearfish and Sturgis. There is noticeable truck noise during the weekdays on US 85 (there's a quarry a few miles south of the campground). Good width on the asphalt access roads. Sites are mostly level concrete pads with asphalt entry and exit. Generous spacing between sites filled with grass and relatively young trees. Each site includes a picnic table on a concrete pad. Power ok, water great (110 psi), sewer ok. Note the utilities are right up against the edge of the concrete parking pad. Given the closeness of the utilities, big rigs should use extra care getting in as the concrete pad is only about 10' wide. Wifi is problematic. The campground wifi has decent signal with speed ranging from adequate to very poor (slower in the early to mid evenings as usual). Verizon was 2-3 bars with speed ranging from good to abysmal (again slow in the evening). What makes the wifi problematic is that these performance levels were with the campground only 10% to 20% full. TMobile was unavailable. No problem with satellite access, although this may change in 10 years or so as the trees mature. Cardboard recycling on site (only 1 container just north of the office). Good road bike riding within the campground and pretty decent along the shoulders of US 85 heading south from the campground. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

North Park Campground, Dickinson, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a combination mobile home park, long term rv park, and short term rv park. Comments apply to the short term area. Dirt access roads, dirt sites with a minimal scattering of gravel. Sites somewhat level. Very long pullthrus are alternating direction so patio area is shared. Very close together - a small grassy area barely wide enough for a picnic table running parallel to the sites with a narrow concrete walkway on each side is all that separates two sites. Two adjacent rigs could not both put out their awnings. Some of the narrowest sites we've seen outside of Florida. Except for the walkway and grass area, it gets extremely muddy after a rain so it is nearly impossible to keep mud out of the rig. A large amount of gravel would be a huge improvement on appearance and livability not only by dealing with the mud, but by adding usable outdoor space in front and back of the rig. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok. Campground wifi good signal with adequate to sluggish speed. Verizon 3 bars, did not check speed. Tmobile signal varied from non existent to 1 bar, did not check speed. No recycle on site. Road bike riding in the neighborhood. This would have been a 7 except for the mud problem. We will probably not stay here again unless they address their mud issues. We camped at North Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Fox Run RV Park, Williston, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Somewhat shabby campground from the oil boom days. Basically an open field with gravel / dirt access roads (still somewhat muddy and puddled in places 3 days after a heavy rain). Sites are large river rock over dirt and rather uneven and somewhat close together. Very little struggling grass between the sites. No shade and very dusty. Mainly setup for long term stays, but they will do an overnight stay. Power ok (but did not put a load on it). Did not use other utilities. Strong campground wifi signal with good speed. Verizon 3 bars, did not check speed. No TMobile service. No recycling on site and no obvious road bike riding opportunities. We'll stay at the Walmart next time we're in the area. We camped at Fox Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sleeping Buffalo Hot Springs, Saco, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

A relatively new, work in progress campground. Very quiet - almost zero highway or train noise - and very dark (nice views of the milky way). The access roads and sites are a heavy layer of river gravel over dirt. Access roads are a decent size. The gravel is not packed down yet in the sites so it is very loose and may require jack pads. Sites have a lot of loose gravel that is significantly crowned so side-to-side leveling is highly dependent on positioning within the site. Our site sloped towards the front, but not so much that we couldn't level although we did have to pull out our extra step. Adequate site width with struggling grass, picnic table, and fire ring. Some sites have shade (mainly the backins) while others are entirely in the sun (the pullthrus). Power ok, water pressure low (40psi static, 34 psi flowing) - slight metallic smell, sewer ok (but slight sewer smell after heavy rains). No campground wifi. Verizon 4 bars with good speed. No TMobile service. No recycling on site (aluminum can recycle in the town of Malta). Possible road bike riding along the shoulders of US 2. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Sleeping Buffalo Hot Springs in a Motorhome.

Hansen Family Campground and Storage, LLC, Havre, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

A mostly quiet campground in a field nestled between US 2 and the train tracks on the north and some low rolling hills to the south. Highway noise non-existent, but many trains - half dozen overnight (no horns and moving rather quickly). Gravel access roads with gravel pullthrus that are mostly level. Very struggling grass and some very young trees (no shade for at least 10 years). Power OK, did not use other utilities. Campground wifi good signal and speed (however campground was mostly empty). Verizon 5 bars, did not check speed. No TMobile service. No issues with satellite access. Aluminum can and plastic recycle on site. No obvious road bike riding adjacent to the campground - perhaps along the shoulders of US 2. We will stay here again. We camped at Hansen Family Campground and Storage, LLC in a Motorhome.

Trails West RV Park, Shelby, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

A small, worn campground just off US 2 (behind the Best Western) Checkin is at the Best Western. Gravel access roads pretty much single lane and a bit narrow for a big rig backing into a site. Somewhat level gravel sites - mix of backin and pull through. Sites are relatively close together. Struggling grass with significant amounts of dog poop between the sites. Big rigs with a toad have to disconnect even for the pull throughs to fit (max site length is 60'). Power ok, did not use the other utilities. Campground wifi good signal strength and speed. Verizon 4 bars, did not check speed. No TMobile signal. No problems with satellite access. We will look elsewhere next time. We camped at Trails West RV Park in a Motorhome.

West Glacier KOA, West Glacier, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $69.00
Overall Rating:      

Probably the best KOA we've ever been to and in the top ranks of all the campgrounds we've been to. Set off from the highway in a clearing in the woods far enough to eliminate any highway noise with only the occasional faint distant train horn. Halfmoon Flats road coming in from highway is somewhat twisty with some relatively blind curves. Inside the campground the access roads are a mix of asphalt (only close to the entrance) and gravel. Roads are a lane and a half wide so problematic for two rigs passing. Sites are level gravel and decent length and width. Gravel patio area with fire pit, benches and picnic table. Then grass all around the site with good separation between the sites. Scattered trees within the campground provide some shade and in some cases will interfere with satellite access. Power was a bit low (109v) when we arrived (the park was full), it was better later when the park was empty. Water pressure was a bit low (50 psi static, but only 35psi flowing). Sewer was ok. Campground wifi had good signal (perhaps influenced by an antenna in our site). Speed varied from adequate to sluggish when the campground was full to quite decent when the campground was near empty. Verizon was 4 bars with speed ranging from adequate to abysmal (the fire camp and helibase were right next door and thus on the same tower). No TMobile signal. Recycling consisted of 3 small trash cans - glass, plastic, aluminum - somewhat out of sight behind the office. Apgar visitor center had a large recycle setup for plastic, paper, and cardboard. Nice paved road bike trail running parallel to US 2 - about a 10 mile round trip into the park. We will stay here again. We camped at West Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

Dick's RV Park, Great Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

An older campground. Relatively quiet given its location next to a major highway. There was noticeable road noise during the day and a single, very loud train late afternoon. Approaching the campground, there is 14' clearance under the railroad bridge. Inside the campground, wide asphalt access roads with a few trees that need trimming for taller rigs. Mostly level gravel sites with decent spacing between sites. Grass between the sties and picnic tables on the site. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Satellite access ok in most sites. Campground wifi had decent signal, but unusable speed. Verizon was 5 bars with good speed. TMobile was highly variable ranging from no service to 3 bars (mostly around 2 bars), did not check speed. No recycle on site. Probably ok road bike riding in neighborhood We would overnight here again. We camped at Dick's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice campground, but an obviously older one (pre big rigs and slideouts). Extremely well maintained. Main entrance road is wide asphalt, interior roads are relatively narrow (mostly single lane) asphalt that are used for two way traffic. Sites are level gravel with very lush grass between the sites. Sites had picnic tables (some unmovable), swings, fire pit. Lots of shade so satellite access may be problematic. The campground can be used by big rigs (we got in and out), but is not big rig friendly. The trees are not trimmed for taller rigs, turns are somewhat tight in places with some scraping from trees on the inside of the turns likely. The access roads are narrow and mostly two way with no provision for passing - someone will have to back up (even rig v. car, much less two rigs). There are some painted arrows on the ground in places, but they were routinely ignored. The sites with the unmovable picnic tables can make parking very difficult to use for a big rig - ours was right up against the parking area. We had to park diagonally in the site with front of the rig on the extreme left and the back on the extreme right of the site. Otherwise, access to our basement was impossible and the front slide on the patio side could not be extended. Campground personnel refused to move the table. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok. Satellite access was not a problem, but it might be for some sites. Campground wifi was adequate as was Verizon. We did try the hot tubs and found them to be rather scuzzy and bug infested due to the white lights. No recycling on site. OK road bike riding within the campground and there is a paved trail about a mile down the street from the entrance. We would probably stay here again, but we would at least re-examine the alternatives first. This is primarily due to the big rig issues noted above. Smaller rigs would have no problem with this campground and if we were in a smaller rig, we would stay here again. We camped at Billings KOA in a Motorhome.

Buffalo KOA , Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

A pretty typical KOA. Gravel access roads were a lane and a half. Gravel sites with somewhat struggling grass between the sites. A fair amount of shade from all the trees. Power ok even under load, did not use other utilities. Campground wifi good signal with adequate speed. Verizon 5 bars, very good speed. No TMobile service. Satellite access is very site dependent unless using a portable antenna. Full recycle (sorted) on site, possible road bike riding on highway outside campground. We would overnight here again, perhaps staying a few days. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

Douglas KOA, Douglas, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the nicer KOAs we've stayed at. Very quiet even when jammed full for the eclipse. Some daytime road noise from I-25. Asphalt and gravel for access roads. Main exit road has trees overlapping well into road, big rigs will need most of the exit road to avoid. Good sized gravel sites are mostly level. Gravel patios, small square of grass, some with trees, picnic table. Not a lot of shade. Power ok, water ok (60psi, but dropped off under load), sewer ok but back at end of site (we needed 20+ feet of hose to reach). Campground wifi had decent signal and widely varying speeds from adequate (campground 1/4 full) to multi-minute page loads (for several hours after the eclipse). Verizon 2-3 bars with speeds ranging from adequate to non existent. No Tmobile service. Sat access generally not an issue. Soda can recycle on site. Relatively lightly used highway outside campground for road bike riding, but no shoulders. We will stay here again. We camped at Douglas KOA in a Motorhome.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice urban campground. Decent asphalt access roads, a bit tight around the gatehouse for big rigs. Level, paved sites are generally widely spaced surrounded by low vegetation, grass, some trees. Some sites with lots of shade some with none. Level concrete pads, gravel patios, fire pit/barbie, picnic table. Miles of road bike trails within the park connecting to more miles outside the park. Around 1.5m walk to light rail station with frequent service to downtown. Power ok even under heavy load, water ok, sewer ok. Campground wifi good signal with mostly decent speeds. Verizon 2-3 bars with moderate to sluggish speed, TMobile was 4 bars with decent speed. Satellite access is site dependent. No recycle on site. We will stay here again. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

State park fees are on top of camping fees so longer stays are better off getting an annual pass.

Diamond Campground and RV Park, Woodland Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

A very quiet campground nestled in a pine wood - every site is pretty much surrounded by trees. Main access road is worn asphalt only a bit wider than a single lane - two rigs would have difficulty passing. Secondary access roads are packed gravel fines with some good sized dips between the access road and the sites. Sites are packed gravel with greenery (mostly weeds) between the sites. Our site was level front to back, but sloped side to side enough that all the tires on one side were off the ground. However we didn't see a lot of cases with tires off the ground. Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Big rig access is doable, but this is not a big rig friendly campground. Oncoming cars on the access roads pretty much have to pull completely off the road. Getting into the site may require a neighbor moving a car. We had to back out of our pull thru site. Power ok - did not stress, water ok 50psi, sewer rather odd - not threaded and at 45 degree angle making it next to impossible to use without holding it in place - even sewer weights were insufficient. Wifi good both signal and speed even during the early evening. Verizon 4 bars, good speed. Tmobile 3 bars did not check speed. Satellite access is very site dependent and problematic for roof mounts. Full single stream recycle on site. Paved bike trail across the street from campground entrance. We would stay here again. We camped at Diamond Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Raton KOA, Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $33.00

A very basic, no frills, quiet campground far enough from the highway to avoid any noise. Packed gravel access roads and sites with some grass between the sites and a few trees (mainly around the edges and in the tent area). Sites are mostly level. Power ok, water ok (70psi), sewer ok. Campground wifi had no internet connection so unable to evaluate. TMobile 2 bars, did not check speed; Verizon 5 bars LTE, good speed. We would stay here again.

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This continues to be a decent campground for the area. Not many changes from our prior visits (see our reviews from 9/15 and 4/16). The major change is a new campground wifi. Unfortunately, the new wifi seemed worse than the old wifi. It's Tengo with moderate signal strength (the antenna was 1 site away). I didn't get a feel for the speed since every time I opened a new tab in my browser, it asked me to login again. So I just stayed on our Verizon hotspot which was good except for the usual slowdown in the evenings. We would stay here again. We camped at American RV Resort in a Motorhome.
