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.

Heyburn Riverside RV Park, Heyburn, Idaho

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed here several times as it is a good first/last night out. It is fairly quiet with a nice little walking trail on the river. We have not been when there is a "camp host" before. There was a sign to see the host, but no host around. We saw a few cones parked at sites and assumed they were taken, so pulled into an open site. After set up I went back to the pay kiosk and the host was there. He seemed confused (thought we came in the night before). I told him our site and was informed by his wife we had to move, the site was reserved! She was not willing to exchange sites because we were in a long-term site (they were exactly the same). Later the park manager came over and apologized. The host rode around in his cart (with the marker cones in the back) and escorted folks to their sites when he noticed their arrival. We will be back, because the park and management are great. We camped at Heyburn Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Green River KOA, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We had one of the nicer back in sites (#4) for the shade and distance from the road. Sites are level gravel with grass, picnic table, and fire ring. Near the freeway, but pretty quiet. We stayed there while hiking in San Rafael Swell. Are planning to be back in the fall, and will stay at KOA again. We camped at Green River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderland RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Great little park on the highway, which is two lanes and quiet at night. Sites are level gravel with grass and picnic table. We stayed in a pull thru. Service was perfect. The park is well kept, and everything works. Capital Reef is a 10 minute drive. We will be back (hopefully in the fall). We camped at Wonderland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sun Resorts RV Park, Mesquite, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here a few nights to check out Gold Butte area. The park is basic with gravel sites and paved roads. It is close to the freeway, so there is both freeway and local traffic noise. Next to a grocery store and diesel, which is convenient. Pet area is just gravel with a fence around it. We arrived early, but were not allowed to check in. Spacing is tight. We were in front of a gate to the grocery store parking lot. The gate was broke, so it banged against the fence all night. Would try for some place other than Mesquite next time. We camped at Sun Resorts RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Robbins Nest Mobile Village (55+ park), Overton, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This is a funky old retirement park with some overniters. We were hoping to find a spot in Valley of Fire, but it was full. This was plan B and it is fine. The site is level, pull-thru gravel that is fairly narrow and short. Parking our truck is tricky but doable. The manager is very helpful and easy to contact, when needed. The location is fine for visiting Valley of Fire, and more protected in a current windstorm. There is a nice little market within walking distance. We would stay here again. We camped at Robbins Nest Mobile Village (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Nevada Treasure RV Resort & Spa, Pahrump, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

They tried to put us in a back-in site that required a 45+ degree turn into a narrow spot. Their expert was to assist us, but even he couldn't do it. So after scraping our fender and breaking tree branches, we demanded a different site. Ended up in a nice spot with a patio and gas bbq. The Park wasn't full as many snow birds had left, so don't know why they tried to put us in that first site. It is snow bird heaven with paddling type pools, on-site restaurant, and a fitness center that was too warm. We stayed for access to Death Valley and Red Rock Canyon, so not really our type of place. Just convenient. We camped at Nevada Treasure RV Resort & Spa in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Gravel park with level pull thru sites. Good hookups. WiFi wasn't great. Right off the freeway, so it was a little noisy. Couple operating the park were very nice and helpful. Nothing great, but good for an overniter. We camped at Angel Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Goulding's Lodge & Campground, Oljato-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.

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.

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.
