Spruce Lake RV Resort, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

Campground choices in Estes for full hook-up big rigs (we have a 40') fifth wheel) are very limited. The location of this campground is a big selling point as you are on the west side of town and have easy access to the National Park. We were fortunate to be placed in site 9, on the exterior row facing the small fishing lake. Since the sites are pretty close together, we didn't feel penned in and had nice views of the mountains. The water from the spigot had a very musty odor and taste to it. We switched to bottled water for consumption. Also, getting someone to return a call is challenging. We had to change our reservations and I sent several email and left multiple voice mail before someone called me back. They tell you they are serious about the check in time or you get to pay an extra fee. We arrived 30 minutes early and were advised to set up and then return after 1:00 to check in to avoid the fee. We would probably try to research another spot on our next visit, but I have not eliminated Spruce Lake as an option for the future. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rawlins KOA, Rawlins, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a basic KOA right off of I-80. The sites are simple with gravel layouts and a bit of greenery (not much) inbetwee. The campground was clean. If you are needing an overnight spot while traveling, this is a good place. I was surprised by the lack of highway noise given the proximity to the interstate. There was some, but not deafening. The view out our camper window of the WY sunset was gorgeous. Be prepared for strong WY winds. We had to hold the camper door with two hands. We camped at Rawlins KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

I can't say enough about the assistance provided by the front desk as we limped into the park with our 40" fifth wheel and a truck needing to be serviced at Ford. They quickly accommodated us with a spot prior to check-in time and were quite flexible with our reservation since we did not know when the truck would be prepared. On the last day, they even accommodated a late check out. The spot we had was an easy pull-through with full hook ups. The spots were reasonably wide. The front door of our camper faced the front door of the camper beside us. Fortunately we had lovely neighbors but we heard everything from their camper (conversations, TV, etc.). It appears that this park is mostly used for one night travelers and it is easy to get to from the interstate and major highways. A little expensive for an overnight spot, but the location is outstanding. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Ridgway State Park, Ridgway, Colorado

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

We stayed for 4 nights in Pa Co Chu Puk G loop. We had a pull through site facing the west with a beautiful view of the mountains and we were away from the main highway. There was a small group of trees planted to the west of our camper that provided shade from the western sun. The concrete pad was level and the full hook ups worked well. The sites are incredibly spacious. The grounds of the campground included access to the river and fishing ponds. The location was perfect for exploring Ouray and Telluride. The price quoted does not include the $16 online processing fee. We had purchased a Colorado Park Pass for $70 (annual fee), so the daily park usage fee of $7 was waived. I can easily say this is one of the most beautiful state parks in Colorado. We camped at Ridgway State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

South Rim (NPS Campground), Black Canyon Gunnison Nat'l Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

The location of this campground on the South Rim deserves a 10! We were in loop B and had a very long, back-in site with 50 amp service. We have a 40' ft wheel. Backing the rig into the site was a challenge due to trees and posts marking the campsites, but we managed with a little wiggling and patience. We had one of the best sites as we were totally off the road and there was great vegetation around us providing privacy. Many of the pull through sites in that loop are on the road that runs through the campground. It was so tight, that several campers did not fully extend their bumps. There is no dump (there's one in town at the Forest Service Office) and there is no water available to fill tanks. There is water available to fill small jugs. We made sure to fill our tanks before we got there. The road to the campground is steep but fairly easy even when towing a big rig. So I just listed all the problems, but it's a wonderful national park location. The rangers did nightly programs on the history, geology, and animal life. This is a designated dark sky area and the star gazing is outstanding. We toured both rims, North and South. Both provide outstanding views of the canyon. It's about a 90 minute drive from the South Rim to the North Rim from the campground. We camped at South Rim (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA, Silt, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This park is only 4 years old and the attention to detail provided by the management is evident as they develop the park. The park is located on the Colorado River and the sites along the river are outstanding with a covered gazebo, propane grill, fire ring, picnic table and patio chairs. Also, the distance between sites is the best I have ever seen in a KOA. The extended patio areas really gave you a nice area for sitting. The park is a short 15 minute drive from the town of Glenwood Springs and there are local grocery stores and gas stations within 5-8 minutes of the campground. We camped at Glenwood Springs West / Colorado River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Pullman restaurant in Glenwood has a great patio and wonderful views. Service was excellent. Ironwood Hot Springs is wonderful for an adult atmosphere. Beverages are available and there are a variety of soaking tubs of different temperatures and sizes. The Glenwood Canyon bike trail offers dramatic views of the canyon and river.

Spanish Trail RV Park & Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This park is located on the edge of town. The views of the mountains behind the park were quite nice. Out site, 512, was located on the back row as far from the road as possible. Road noise was minimal. Because we had an end site, we had lots of room around the picnic table and no neighbor to contend with on the front side of the camper and we enjoyed some shade. There was ample space between the sites. The site was just long enough for our 40' 5th wheel, but there was ample parking behind the camper for our truck. There was no patio, but the picnic table sat on a lovely small, green yard. The campground was hosting a rally while we were there and the group took advantage of the small pavilion area. All in all, this was a nice campground and we would return. We camped at Spanish Trail RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Steamboat Springs KOA, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

Options for camping near the town of Steamboat are limited if you want full hook ups. Pros: location! right on the river, minutes to town, easy access to the bike path, good hook ups, beautiful grounds around the river. Cons: traffic NOISE! The park is located right on the highway and the traffic noise is awful. It was so bad that we rarely sat outside. Thankfully, we spent most of our time exploring the area, so could put up with the noise. Parking for the tow vehicles is very tight. The tent sites along the Yampa River looked exceptionally nice. We camped at Steamboat Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Island KOA, Doniphan, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

There is very easy access to this campground from the interstate. The park has many mature trees and has cornfields on two sides. The cornfields are nice because they help to buffer the traffic noise from the interstate which is minimal given the proximity to the interstate. The water hook ups are different depending on the site. We had a shared spigot. Our hook up was on the correct side, however the neighbor we shared with had to run a long hose to get to the water hook up on the passenger side of his rig. You may want to inquire about this when making a reservation. The spaces were close together, but no closer than most KOAs. For an overnight spot, it's a lovely KOA and we would return. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Winding River RV Resort, Grand Lake, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This is a gem of an RV park located in an area where there are not many camping options. The location is ideal for exploring the national park as well as Grand Lake and Granby. As a previous reviewer noted, there are 3 sections to the campground. We were in a water/electric site and we were so glad we were. There are full hook up sites available, but the sites are much closer together than the water/electric sites. Talk to the reservation agent about what you are looking for and they will guide you in your site selection. The views from our campsite were phenomenal! The restrooms and laundry areas are incredibly clean and the staff is very responsive to requests and concerns. WiFi was available at our campsite and we had a strong signal due to our location. If you want a gorgeous CO mountain setting, this is the place for you. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground, Baddeck, Nova Scotia

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

The location of this park is the only thing that saved me from giving it a less than average review. The sites for the travelers are VERY tight! To get our 37 Ft fifth wheel to fit onto the site, we had to back up within inches of the camper behind us. When we put our awning out, we had about 2 feet of space to the next rig. Thankfully, we had great neighbors and we all worked together to park our tow vehicles. When we left in the morning, we had to ask neighbors to move their cars so we could exit. The campground is very pretty and their are large areas set aside for playgrounds etc. The more spacious sites are set aside for the seasonal campers. We would not return to this park. Too tight!

Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping, St. Andrews, New Brunswick

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

The location of this park located right on the bay in St. Andrews earns the 9 star rating. There are a variety of sites to choose from including ocean front, which we had, ocean view and interior. The seasonal residents have the interior spots and the spots with the best views are saved for the travelers like us. The sewer hook ups are on both sides of the camper so RVs can pull directly in and face the water with their big windshields. Some might find the spaces a bit tight depending on who is parked around you and which direction they are pointed. We were fortunate to have a small camper on each side of us so it was not an issue. The firepits for the ocean front spots are behind the campers so you can enjoy the view. Wifi was fairly strong. The laundry had 4 washers and dryers and they cost $2.50 each to operate. The campground is located within easy walking distance of the downtown area and you also have access to ocean front trails. We would definitely stay here again. The price quoted for the site is in CA$. We camped at Kiwanis Oceanfront Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Camping Gaspé, Gaspe, Quebec

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

This is a hard review to write and be fair to the park. The biggest concern relates to the space between campers. The campsites are set so that you pull through in opposite directions from each other meaning that your front door faces the front door of the camper adjacent to you. We were quite fortunate to be there during low season so we did not have campers on either side of us. However, if we had, I'm fairly sure our awnings would touch. The tightness of the campground aside, this was a beautifully maintained park right on the water. The owners are quite meticulous about property upkeep and maintenance. The campground is located along a main road, but it is not heavily trafficked. There are some seasonal campers, but they are in a forested area apart from travelers. There is only one washer and dryer. The fire "rings" are set on old lawnmower chassis and are easily moved. The sites are fairly short requiring you to set your rig at the front or back end of the pull through in order to park your tow. Most people, like we, used another camping space to park the tow. We camped at Camping Gaspé in a Fifth Wheel.

Camping de Carleton-sur-Mer, Carleton-sur-Mer, Quebec

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

What a great campground! We had a back in site right on the beach with full hook ups. Though the campground was quite open, there was a lot of space between our camper and the surrounding campers and the angle of the site gave us more ocean view than camper view. The park had a lot of amenities for families; however, since we were there later in the season, most activities were shut down. Grocery stores, pharmacies, fresh fish markets and gas are all within an easy drive. Since we only used this as an overnight spot, we did not really explore the area other than to ride the bike trail from the park around the bay and explore the lighthouse. There was free wifi, but the signal strength was very weak at the campsite (how often do you read that in a review!) We camped at Camping de Carleton-sur-Mer in a Fifth Wheel.

South Kouchibouguac Campground (Parks Canada), Kouchibouguac National Park, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is another example of a fine Canadian National Park that is big rig friendly. Our back in spot put us right on the bike path. We were heavily forested but limbs had been cleared so it was not a problem for the camper. The site was fairly level. The bike/walking path directly behind the camper took us to the beaches. The full hook ups worked well. This was a great place to enjoy the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The reservations web site does a good job of sharing specifics about the options for each campsite including forested vs open. Since we camped here during 2017, there was no visitor charge for using the national park. Next year, the fees will be assessed again. The campground is located about 12 kilometers from the visitor center. Interior roads were nice. We camped at South Kouchibouguac Campground (Parks Canada) in a Fifth Wheel.
