About DiplomatTraveler

We travel in a 2006 Monaco Diplomat 40PDQ with four slides and tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee; overall length about 60'. It is important to have a safe place to spend the night; it's okay if the park is old and a bit worn out. We're more concerned about trees overgrowing the site. We're not looking for frills and we don't need someone planning every hour of our day. Our rig is our home; we use our own bathroom! Why go to the neighbors?

This small park is located near the city's ballparks; however, you need to check in at the ESSO Westend Convenience Store on 3rd before going to the park. There is plenty of parking along the frontage road so you register at the store. The campground is gravel and very clean. There are two sites in each open space; a buffer of trees separates each set. There is plenty of room between the two adjoining sites; you'll pull through from opposite directions. We didn't check out the facilities as we use our own. The local library has placed a rubber tub full of books that is used as a book exchange. Sign at the campground listed cost in Canadian dollars as $20 basic, $25 electric, $30 full hookups. Electric is 30 amp.

This RV sites in this park sit back off the highway so it is very quiet. They are pull-though, mostly grass, level, and there is a buffer of trees between most spaces. Sites are big rig friendly, especially 40' and shorter; 45' should take off their tow vehicle before trying to park. Rate is with Good Sam discount and $5 additional per night for 50 amp. Remember, rates will vary due to exchange rate. There is a book exchange in the office/store area.

This is a completely awesome park. The owners have put so much effort into making this a welcoming place. You can take a walk in the woods, take a swim, sit along the sandy lake shore, play a game of basketball or volleyball, or just sit quietly at your site. Sites 1-5 are very big rig friendly. They are 100' long, pull-through, and paved. Other sites are nestled in the trees and work well for shorter rigs or tents. Wi-Fi worked very well. There is a well maintained gravel road coming off the highway into the park, but it is only about 1 km. The entrance to the park and all park roads are paved.

We used this park as our base to explore Winnipeg. The campground is quite large and has what appears to be two sections. The older one has shaded, grassy sites under the trees, and is used by many as a seasonal base. The newer section is more open, big rig friendly, and has long pull-throughs. There is a playground, mini-golf, basketball and volleyball courts, and a shuffleboard area. The office area has a small store with food and RV supplies, a used book sale or exchange 1-1 of equal value, and there are billiard tables and video game machines.

This park is located on Pelican Lake and is used by many as a seasonal base. The park is clean, sites are level, and mostly gravel/grass. There has been a lot of rain recently, so some of the sites were still wet/muddy. Rate for the park was $26CN, but they charged us $20US since we hadn't changed out to Canadian money at the time. Price included 30 amp and water; no sewer. It served us well for one night.

This simple campground is off the beaten path, but it is a gem. I don't know if we've ever been the only ones in a campground, but we had that experience here. The sites are grass, level, and the park is very well maintained and managed. The museums are wonderful to wander through. The restrooms are clean but rustic. The museum holds their annual event in June each year. There is a sewer dump and fresh water available; 30 amp only at the site. Plenty of room for all sizes of rigs and tents. The manager is looking for volunteers/work campers. If you are interested, he can use the help with maintaining the grounds, collections, and campground. Contact the park.

This simple campground is showing its age, but it is clean; we didn't see the garbage that the last reviewer reported. Yes, the sites are close together and the shared area between rigs is limited. There is a restaurant on site, but we didn't use it. Sites are dirt/gravel, level, and long enough for motorhome and tow. Frontier Village with the World's Largest Buffalo is within walking distance; lots of fun shops and old buildings to explore as well. The park served us well for an overnight stop.

Rate is for Passport America and we paid an additional $4 for 50 amp service. The park sits behind a Super 8 Motel just off I-90. The roads and sites are gravel. Site 303 was level and long enough for our 40' motorhome with tow behind. The office has a book exchange, a few snacks, visitor information, and ice. Train tracks are behind the park, but we didn't notice them until later in the evening.

This campground is owned/managed by Forever Resorts. It is an old campground and things are looking quite worn. The bathrooms are clean except for needing garbage cans dumped. The laundry room needs some work; at least one of each appliance is out of order. However, new management/camp hosts are working to set things right is how it looks to us. The pool is open, clean, and kids are enjoying it. The new snack bar/café/store should be operational by early July. The motel is closed and there are a few small cabins that have been brought on site - probably for employees - that are also inhabitable at this time. Site 103 is a long pull-through with our tow parked behind. Camp host let us trim a few branches that were hanging down on our motorhome. Tent sites have covered picnic tables; RV sites just have a table. The park is far enough off I-90 that road noise is not an issue. Having stayed at other Forever Resort locations, we can guess they will be fixing up this location as quickly as possible.

This is a membership park, our rate reflects being guests of a member. Sites are level, paved, and spacious. Many activities for families, restaurant and snack bar on site, and also a store and gas station. Grounds are well maintained and the green space between the rows provides a sense of openness. Non-members can stay in the park, but reservations can only be made 24 hours in advance.

The name of this park says it all - Devils Tower View! Every site has a full on view of the Tower. Sites are grass and gravel, some more level than others. We were told to take whatever site we wanted so got to pick what worked best for our 40'. There is a store and restaurant on site with wonderfully funny, helpful staff. Rate is per night, power only (50amp); no water or sewer. We had no power issues during our stay. There is a new restroom/bath house; you don't use the porta potties. We took Site #1. It sits flat along the fence line. Circle through the park and come in from the wrong direction - you have a full on view of the Tower from your front window. We stretched the electrical cord under the coach to get power. Pull out your chairs and enjoy the view!

Rate includes discount for America the Beautiful pass ($8) and an extra $4 for electrical. We found the upper/right side of the campground to have the most room for big rigs. Sites are all back in, have a picnic table, fire ring, and BBQ stand. Firewood was available for $5 bundle. There is also a boat launch and picnic area below the campground sites. We took a great walk around the lake to find the geocache; other campers were fishing or out in their canoes. This park sits at 7,900 ft elevation on the Big Horn Scenic Byway. We came from the west so climbed at least 6,000 ft in elevation to the top of the pass. It is a beautiful, scenic drive. Be prepared for slow moving trucks, big rigs, and don't hesitate to pull over if you are heating up! We'll definitely stay here again.

This city owned campground is free; donation requested. There are both paved, gravel, and dirt roads within the campground. We found the front half of the park the best suited for our 40'. Many low hanging limbs as you work your way farther into the park. It appears the road has been redone to the back half of the park and there are some nice sites along the river. There was some firewood provided, but it was mostly construction debris the night we stayed here. Bathrooms were simple but clean. There is a lot of traffic coming and going during the day to the boat/raft launch area.

Rate is for 30amp with Good Sam discount. There is a $3 extra per day charge for 50amp. Roads and sites are gravel, level, and long enough for most rigs and their tow vehicle. A few shade trees help with the afternoon sun. It may not be an issue on most rigs, but we had to watch the position of our slide outs so as to not hit the tall posts which hold the water faucet and electrical box. A small exchange library is located in the office building.

This park has the most beautiful flowers greeting you as you drive into and through the park. We've been here three times now and it is still very well maintained, well-managed, and service is the best. Roads are paved throughout the park; the sites are gravel and level. Most sites are pull-throughs; though they have shorter back-in sites. They are long enough for our 40' motorhome with tow parked behind and very nicely spaced; you aren't walking over or around your neighbor's utilities. New picnic tables are being installed; watch your hot grill! The laundry room is good size and holds the exchange library. Recycling is available in this park; we don't find this very often and appreciate it when we do.
