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.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

Have stayed here several times in the past. This time we were very disappointed, especially for the price. The restrooms were messy and didn't seem very clean, there was trash strewn around the park, and the noise level had increased a lot. We use a noise machine and had it cranked up to high. The trains, freeway traffic, and planes taking off creates in tremendous amount of noise. The dog park needs some real help. They use astro turf rather than grass, and it was badly stained and really stunk. Even my mutt dog would have nothing to do with it. Will look for alternatives in the future. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Steinaker State Park Campground, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older park 7 miles from highway 40. It is pretty dated, but well maintained. The park is VERY quiet at night. Because the lake is very low (dam repairs), the park was fairly empty. The sites are a little difficult with respects to level. Our site was somewhat hill and required several extra blocks on the rear stabilizers. The best sites were electric only. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Junction KOA, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Basic KOA. Easy access from highway 50. Some road noise that subsides at night. Sites are gravel and nicely spaced. We had a pull-through patio site. There was a dog show at the fairgrounds during our stay, so it was full every night. Wifi was fine. Doubt we will be back to Grand Junction, so probably won't be back. We camped at Grand Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderland RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Second time here. It is a great little park. Located on the highway (24) so there is traffic noise during the day. Since we are here for Capital Reef, don't care about daytime noise. It gets quiet at night. Owners are really great, and the park is very well maintained. They added a fenced dog area since the spring, which is a nice addition. Great fruit trees. Apples aren't quite there, but we had some lovely peaches. Will be back again next fall. We camped at Wonderland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fillmore KOA, Fillmore, Utah

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

Great little KOA a good 1/2 mile from the freeway, so little traffic noise. It is managed by a very conscientious young couple. They keep everything very clean and well maintained. The women checked us in and took us to our site. Her husband was moving sprinklers at the time. The site was very level gravel and utilities easy to access. The sites are separated by a patch of grass with a number of poplars providing some shade. Will stay again on our way to Southern Utah. We camped at Fillmore KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Pines RV Park, Crescent, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park off OR-97. Very easy access. We had a reservation, so check-in took less than 3 minutes. We were led to perfectly level gravel site with a fire ring and picnic table. Hookups were very convenient. Bathrooms were very clean. They also had a dog area with green grass...even in September. The only black mark is a biggy for me-road noise. I forgot how much truck traffic there is on 97, and it really does not let up much at night. And for light sleepers like me, it can be a problem. We camped at Big Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bullards Beach State Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Great state park! Located off 101, but road noise is minimal. Lots of shrubs and trees provide privacy between sites. Inner roads are a little narrow, and some trees sit right at the corners of the site driveways. It can make backing into a site just a bit challenging for those of us with less talent for it. The sites are asphalt with fire rings and picnic tables. The hosts sell both firewood and ice at certain times of the day. There is a great little walking path to the beach, which is long for walking. Plan to be back next year. We camped at Bullards Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Azalea Glen RV Park & Campgrounds, Trinidad, California

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Older, very pretty, small park across from Patrick's Pt. State Park. it sits below 101, so there is some road noise. The grassy/dirt sites are fairly easy to maneuver. There is nice off-leash dog park. Park is very quiet and very nicely maintained. It just seems a little speedy. We camped at Azalea Glen RV Park & Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Robbin's Nest RV Park, Bandon, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed based on previous reviews...must have been a different park. This is an old somewhat maintained park directly off Hwy. 101. You hear every bit of traffic. It is primarily dirt, gravel, brown grass, and green weeds. There are a few trees and some planting's that could use a little care. The "lawn" area has some junk and landscaping debris dumped in the corner. Sites are mostly long pull throughs. Bathrooms were ok. Did not use showers. Did not find the owners especially warm and welcoming. We were met by an owner at arrival and told to get parked and come in to complete registration. We were getting risers placed on one side of the trailer to level and utilities at a proper distance, when she came back out and insisted we come in to complete registration. We left it and I went in to register. The speed within the park is 5 mph coming off Hwy. 101 at 55 mph. Apparently, I exceeded the 5 mph at one point, because I received a reprimand by email. The pros include very long sites for bigger rigs and decent WiFi. I doubt we will stay here again. We camped at Robbin's Nest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Good for overnight. This is an older, basic park just off of OR-20. There is road noise during the day, but it is pretty quiet at night. We had a back-in gravel site that barely fit our 32 ft. fiver and truck. The site was not level from side to side, but easily remedied with risers. The restrooms were old, but ok. Did not use the shower. There is an area to walk dogs at the back of the park. We will stay again in a couple of weeks on our way home. We camped at Burns RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

River Bend County Park, Foster, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful, well maintained county park. The reservation system is very organized. The sites are nicely spaced and lined with trees. We were in F15 (based on another review) and it was really a nice, long site. There are walking/hiking trails throughout the park, and along The Santiam. It is right off the Santiam Hwy., but is very quiet at night. A real winner! We camped at River Bend County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.
