About SAU51

We run, hike, walk, and cross country ski in the winter. We love having an RV as a motel room and restaurant. It also allows us to take our dog Daisy pretty much where ever we go. We tend to camp in and around state parks and national forests as much as possible, because they are more apt to allow dogs on their hiking trails. But we do like creature comforts such as full hookups. This is a beautiful country and we try to see as much of it as possible.

Goulding's Lodge & Campground, Monument Valley, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

This is all about the location! Getting in and out is a bit of a challenge, even for a smaller 5th wheel (32ft). The roads are narrow asphalt and the sites are gravel. While our site didn't look level, we were able to get there without using blocks. It was, however, a little short and required parking our truck perpendicular to the trailer. Also, we had to move it twice to allow some huge motorhomes to pass. We did have a great view from our site, and the area is beautiful. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kanab RV Corral, Kanab, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Small park right off the highway, but quiet at night. Sites are gravel and rather close. Bathrooms are rather small, but clean. Pool was closed. Laundry room was also small, but clean with equipment in good shape. Had a nice little dog park. Owners very nice and helpful. We camped at Kanab RV Corral in a Fifth Wheel.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Spacing was very tight. Our space was pretty bad for a 5th wheel hitch--significant slope to the left and uphill in the front. It required three blocks and our tri-leveler under the left trailer wheels and under the left rear truck tires to re-hitch. Also, the FHU really wasn't. We had to dump all at once due to ravens--apparently pecking at sewer hoses. The park was fairly peaceful and quiet, and close to the trails. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Kodachrome Basin State Park, Cannonville, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second (and not our last) time at this park. The park is absolutely beautiful, sites are large treed, and very spacious. Roads and sites are level asphalt. It was remodeled a few years ago and is in excellent shape. It is off the highway by several miles making it feel quite secluded. Because it is located in a Canyon, the traffic is primarily within the campground. Lots of hikes within the park, and the staff is very helpful. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar City KOA, Cedar City, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

An old KOA right off the highway, so plenty of road noise during the day and evening. Does get quiet at night. Roads are old asphalt needing serious repair. The sites also need help, ie. new gravel and some leveling. I had tried to make a reservation, but was told I didn't need one. Then, when we arrived it took a good 15-20 minutes for the woman to decide where to put us. Hookups were strange and required some calculating for room to put out slides. We camped at Cedar City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Fremont Indian State Park / Sam Stowe Campground, Sevier, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Very pretty little park off 89. Sam Stowe has 7 full hook ups. It is a group campground that is now available to individuals when not reserved by a group. Campsites are gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. Sites are gravel--we had #6, which wasn't level. Bathroom are very clean and stocked. There is some road noise from hwy. 89, but not bad at night. Would come again. We camped at Fremont Indian State Park / Sam Stowe Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Ponderosa State Park, McCall, Idaho

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

This is a fantastic state park. They have limited full hook ups and are reservable. We try to get here at least 4 times a year. Right on Payette Lake with beautifully treed sites and many walking/running/hiking trails. The sites in Dogwood are spacious with trees around, fire pit, and picnic table. There is a tent area with most sites and some group sites. The bathrooms are always clean, but we have not used the showers. We camped at Ponderosa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Meadows RV Park, Ketchum, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

It is located right off highway that gets fairly quiet at night. The office is a small kiosk, but the attendant is quite nice. There are rules regarding pets, but we appreciate the rules. People are expected to control their dogs. The attendant guides you to and into the site. The sites are asphalt (somewhat level) and you enter opposite of your neighbor to share utility side. There is a shared little grass strip with a single picnic table. Not much shade. Bathrooms are basic, but clean. Hook ups are fine. The water doesn't need to be filtered. Wifi is fine, no cable. This is the only game in town, so we will be back. We camped at The Meadows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yakima Sportsman State Park, Yakima, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We were in site 33. Arrived a little early, but they would not let us on before 2:30 even though the park was almost empty. Our site, including the picnic table, was soaked because they water until 2:30. The back-in sites are fairly level asphalt and hook ups are well placed. Park is small and fairly quiet. Probably won't be back. Not a lot of value or customer service. We camped at Yakima Sportsman State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $23.00

Cute little county park on the Snake. Spent the night on our way home. The sites are spacious and level gravel with a couple of trees and picnic bench. Next to a park with a nice paved trail along the river. You just pick a spot and pay at a little kiosk. It was a great break from a long drive...perfect over nighter. Next to hwy 30 so there is some road noise during the day, but gets quiet at night. Will stay again. We camped at Heyburn Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in Wakara campground, and had a nice view of the lake. Our site was a nice size, but not level. Water pressure was very low. There is a nice little two mile trail around the lake. It was Ok. We camped at Palisade State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very beautiful state park--rebuilt a couple of years ago. Restrooms and showers are in excellent condition. Park has paved sites with nice spacing. Lovely pinion pine and Utah junipers between the sites. It is 9 miles off the main road with one way in/out. Extremely quiet and relaxing. Several hikes in the campground.

Snow Canyon State Park, St George, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an old park (1959) and really in need of updating. The W/E sites are very narrow and difficult to maneuver, plus getting in and out of them is difficult for larger rigs. If you have slides, you may not be able to open them. The area is very pretty, but development is really encroaching and can be seen above the campground and along some of the trails. But, it is a really pretty red-rock high desert area with many wild flowers. We camped at Snow Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is first come first serve. There are 20 W/E sites in Atlatl campground (where we stayed), and they don't last. After reading other reviews, we heeded the advise and arrived by 10 am on Tuesday to get a spot. While spring is very pretty it is also very busy, so be prepared. Both campgrounds are beautiful and the sites are nicely spaced gravel. The restrooms and showers are older, but very useable. We loved this place and plan to return. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
