Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort, Mancos, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed 3 nights in our 36' MH. Typical Western Campground, clean, nice sites, good wifi, located at the entrance to Mesa Verde NP. We were repeat customers and brought friends this time. Upon arrival, with reservations, we discovered that their website announced an "October stay 2 nights, get third free" special. When we questioned why we were being charged for 3 nights we were told it was an "online special". Then we were told, no, they would have given the special if we had known to ask for it; that it was up to us to know about the discount when placing our reservation. We were told "it is called good marketing" and "buyer beware". Eventually the Park's Management reconsidered their refusal to honor the "October Special" posted on their website, but we are still not pleased that we had to "get ugly" during the conversations. Nice campground, well placed but; their marketing just cost them a repeat customer. We camped at Ancient Cedars at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Bighorn Park, Coaldale, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Spent 2 months June/July, returned mid-Sept to mid-Oct in our 36'MH. On the river, good wet flyfishing for trout (watch USGS river gage). Great hiking nearby. 26 miles to Salida with active weekends. You will be made to feel like you are Doug and Judy's (owners) best friends for life! We had 2 back-ins (22 & 25), they do have many pull-thrus. We camped at Bighorn Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort, Creede, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 1 mo in our 36'MH. The grounds are unbelievable and we would have scored higher but the WIFI is very unreliable and cell service (AT&T & Verizon) is spotty. One is out in the boonies and at 9100' elevation here so be prepared. All sites are back-in and huge. Most campers have an ATV or 4WD as a USFS is nearby. Flyfishing on the Rio Grande is fantastic. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

West Lake RV Park, Eagle Nest, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

After boondocking for a week at the Eagle Nest Lake State Park (just across the fence from here) we needed a place to put our 36' MH & toad while we did wash, cleaned up, etc. The other commercial parks in the area were extremely expensive and one, you will pass it as you enter the State Park, is darn right dismal! West Lake is managed and priced as a 'hobby park' as the owner puts it...no restrooms or other stuff to clean-up. Some weeds, nothing special, your neighbor is close...but it is quiet, clean and functional. We spent 2 nights to get done what we had to and moved on. Many of the campers seemed to be fishermen who left early to drive the 1/4 mile to the lake and returned in the evening. Campsites are in a loop, many are not too level but you make your best pick; easy entrance and movement. We camped at West Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a place to use after boondocking at the local state park or to use for one night as you pass through. (Unless you are a dedicated fisherman and want a full hookup, reasonable campground to sit in while you have easy, close access to the Eagle Nest Lake. Park your boat trailer on the lawn behind the campground.)

Eagle Nest Lake State Park, Eagle Nest, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Boondocking State Park camping, central water faucet, no dump, pit toilets. Our 36' and toad fit well, several sites to choose from. About 1/2 First Come/Served; 1/2 Reserved sites. We arrived on a Thursday and had our choice of several with lake front views. Easy entrance, easy parking. Lots of fishermen but the day-use area is well removed from the campground. High winds most afternoons and brief thunderstorms so be careful out on the lake. Short hiking trail. Daytime watch the prairie dogs play, some birding, elk come down to the pastures on the South end of the lake every evening (requires scope or good binoculars). Quiet, nice. We camped at Eagle Nest Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Arrowhead Point Campground and Cabins , Buena Vista, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Arrived without reservations and got the last 30 amp, no cable (no 'air TV' available), FHU site available. Entrance and Escort to your site is interesting in a 36'; be certain to disconnect your toad at the Office. Parking is easy. Nice folks to work with. Modern campground and they are still improving it. We camped at Arrowhead Point Campground and Cabins in a Motorhome.

Missouri Headwaters State Park, Three Forks, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Despite telephone conversations with this Park's Staff and the Reservations Representative we ended in a site that our 36' RV just fit into. The Toad ended up parked so close to our rig's side that we couldn't fit between them to walk. Fire pit was weed choked. Table was in good shape but filthy. Not a shade tree in site and the sun just bakes the area. Campground is nothing more than a gravel and dirt parking lot with most sites being double bump-outs that you share with your neighbor. Despite daily spraying, mosquitoes are horrible! Towards evening the would-be campers coming and going to check for a site stir up the dust to the point that one can really feel for the early explorers who suffered here. Its a shame as the history and beauty of the area screams to be explored and enjoyed. $30/nite is over-kill for conditions like these. Central water, one M/F combined pit toilet, no dump. All the mosquitoes you care to feed, all the dust you can eat, all the sweat you want to pour out. Noise until well after mid-night goes unchecked from late arrivals, chopping wood, drunks and, for some reason, most think that you came here to hear them singing or playing their fiddle, banjo or violin thru the early morning hours. Two Hosts and One Ranger who all go home or into their air-conditioned RVs (they have FHU) at dusk. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.

Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground), Hayden, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Boondocking, State Park Campground. Central water hydrant, dump on campground. Plenty of room to move around our 36'. Rate includes both the camping and the day-use fee. Upon arrival, we were handed 2 different color permits; one for a 'trailer' with our departure date on it. One for a 'motorized vehicle' with only our arrival date on it. We were told to put the 'motorized permit' on the MH and the 'trailer permit' on the TOAD. We were advised not to move the TOAD or we would have to pay additional Day-Use fees (we stayed for 3 days). We simply reversed the permits and went about our business. Campground as a nice, short trail around it; watch out for the mosquitoes! We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

Trails West RV Park, Shelby, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Arrived around 3 p.m. after having made reservations over a month in advance. One must sign in at the front desk of the Best Western Inn. Found that, despite having many large sites, they attempted to place us in a short, not-level, weed-grown site in the very back of the main campground. Supposed to be FHU; no sewage on site, supposed to be cable; none. Our 36' may of fit but not the Toad. Quickly deduced that the staff had no idea, nor concept of the RV Industry. Demanded and got a larger site with FHU in another part of the campground (no cable in the campground; only the Motel). Spent better part of that day helping others locate the 'Office' and watched them finding sites that they could fit into. Otherwise, typical Western - behind the Motel style campground. We camped at Trails West RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Nothing in the immediate area. They mostly advertised thing-to-do at Glacier which is a pretty good drive away. Watch the 'Breakfast Special' that they push. They offer it to Campers for $6/person and present it as a 'good deal and very tasty'... In reality it is your typical 'Motel breakfast bar'; luke-warm, dry affair with a sign over it announcing 'Complimentary Breakfast 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.'. Makes one feel second class as the Motel Guests wonder thru for free.

Mountain Range RV Park (Winters - Monthly Only), Columbus, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Typical 'Western Small Town Campground'. Open, mostly gravel and dirt. Just off of the interstate. OK for an overnight. About 1/2 of the sites are long term construction workers. The local refinery is due for an overhaul so the Manager is busy on the phone with workers looking for a long-term site. Manager works hard, seems to be a one-women show; she does everything from the front desk to mowing; but her stress is telling on her attitude. Most sites are pull-thru. We camped at Mountain Range RV Park (Winters - Monthly Only) in a Motorhome.

Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground, Lander, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Interesting entrance way, sharp turns with a steep hill; but once into the park there is sufficient room to navigate a large rig (we have a 36' RV). The campground sets on a high bluff so the views are nice. I must comment on the Owner - she was constantly out on the grounds cleaning, watering, etc...nice to see and it shows. We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tri-State RV Park, Matamoras, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for a week to visit local family. Not only is the campground nightly fee overpriced, they hit me for a $58.00 electricity usage deposit and $10.00 for cable! Campground has a great deal of highway noise as noted by others; but the dogs barking at the more permanent sites goes on day and night! Campground impression is that the owners are just taking the money and riding it out until they can sell; junk, downed fences, construction debree, etc.. Watch your step - dog poop is everywhere! We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.
