About Good Vibes

We're retired and spend about half the year on the road. We are Habitat Care-A-Vanners so we combine some communal building with our travels.

You can tell the owners are putting a lot of effort in upgrading the campground. They were out everyday on the sites cleaning, repairing and maintaining. I appreciate how the trees were kept trimmed on the roadways and at the site. The site was level and the utilities were grouped and placed nicely for easy access. The site had a tree on each side, so it was a little tricky doing a passenger side, back-up into the site, but one of their workers stopped by to help with the parking. The sites are all mostly wooded, so not many would allow for satellite reception. Over-the-air TV reception was very good with multiple channels. Very close to Freeport and Brunswick. Would stay again if in the area.

The rate reflects PA + $5 for a pull through site. Access is very good with it being only a short distance from I-84. We were running a little late, but when we called approaching the campground, someone came out and directed us to the site. Very much appreciated. The site was reasonably level and had a newly installed electrical box with 50 amp service. The water outlet was another story however. The faucet was on the passenger side of the site, with a garden hose attached and run under the site in a PVC pipe sleeve to the drivers side. It was serviceable, but using a garden hose for potable water is not a good practice. There are no sites with sewer connections making the $60 normal rate, way out of line. Okay for an overnight at the PA rate.

This is a campground that is literally at the back of a working farm. The owners put it in over 50 years ago and have expanded and upgraded it several times. They are now offering a 15% discount to active and retired military as well as veterans. The access roads through the farm are quite narrow. Two RVs head on would be trouble. The main road once reaching the swimming pool and office needs a good tree trimming, but I was able to pull to the side and avoid the overhangs. They only have 21 sites up near the pool that have sewer. There are some very nice pull through sites in the electric and water section that have full shade and lots of spacing and vegetation between sites. The campground is remote, but not far from the Manassas National Battlefield Park.

Rate reflects GS discount for two nights and PA rate for two nights. The campground is quite spread out and bends around a couple horse stables and corrals. We were located on the southernmost area with pull-throughs. No noise from the horses or smells. The bathrooms are dated, but very clean and serviceable. The WiFi is one of the strongest I have had at any campground. The sites are somewhat crowned and narrow, so my auto leveling system took a bit to figure it out. Very conveniently located to the National Battlefield Park and downtown Gettysburg. Good value for the price with discounts.

Date of Stay:

The PA rate requires an extra charge for electricity billed at 15 cents per KWH (for our 50 amp, all electric coach, we used just under 1 KWH per hour or $12.75 for our 4 night stay.) The entrance is fairly narrow and there are some tree branches hanging over several of the roadways. The site was spacious with utilities toward the rear. The sewer connection is strange, tilled up with a 45 degree bend from a mostly horizontal pipe. The bathrooms and showers are dated, but in good shape and clean. Would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Older park with half of the sites as full timers. The transient pull through sites are plenty long but have concrete pads in very bad shape with cracks and heaved sections. The utilities are well laid out and accessible from most positions on the pad. The WiFi was excellent. Not a "destination" park, but very good for a stop-over or if all you want is a place to park with all the hook-ups. All in all, the park is a good value.

Date of Stay:

Very well maintained COE Campground. Access to the park is very good as is the interior roads. The north side of the park is more shaded, but has mostly 30 amp sites. The south side is wide open so no problem with satellite reception. The sites on the south side have mostly 50 amp service and about half the sites are reservable. The shower facility is on the south side and there were three drinking water faucets to fill your tank. There are two boat launch ramps, a swimming area and lots of fishing from the bank or on the piers. The north side of the campground was closed due to potential flooding so it is a good idea to call about river conditions. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

As mentioned, there are about 60-70 percent of the sites occupied by seasonal full timers with others open to daily traffic. All of the sites were shaded to some extent, so no satellite service. The access roads are gravel with the exception of the paved road that goes up to the pool area. Very nice, huge pool with plenty of chairs and a couple umbrellas for shade. The sites on B and C rows could use some more gravel to take up some of the "squish" after it gets wet. Escorted to the site and good access as we were able to leave the towed vehicle hooked up for the overnight stay. The oppressive heat did take it's toll on the electrical system with voltages dropping to around 105V on some lines. The office recommended coming in from the west on the entrance road and going out the same way. Ask for directions if it's not clear.

Date of Stay:

As expected, the sites are close together, but access is very good with paved roads throughout the park. The sites on D row were not at all level. I couldn't level the coach even using blocks under the jacks without raising the front wheels off the ground. The staff is very responsive and helpful. I had a problem with low voltage and it was fixed shortly after I reported it. The location is great, there are two pools, a playground and even a place to get dinners several days a week. Expect crowds, but it is quiet at night.

Best part of this park is the location with great views of the Sand Dunes. The entry road for the pull-through sites is very bumpy with washboard gravel, fairly narrow and close to the back of the sites. With my 40' motorhome, it was easier to go around to the front of the site and back in. The area is gravel and sand and with the winds, expect some blowing sand and debris. The trees are still small and don't provide much shade. The office has a gift shop and restaurant. They also rent sand boards and sleds to use at the National Park. All in all, this is a good place to stay if you are visiting the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The only discount is for military: active, retired or a veteran.

Bayfield Riverside RV Park

This is indeed a wonderful RV Park. The grounds are immaculate with freshly planted flowers and grass patches to give it that homey feeling. The creek has a swimming hole and fishing open to everyone. They escort you to your site and the staff is constantly circulating the grounds to make sure all is well. I had a low tire and the owner quickly got out his high pressure air pump to get it back up to operating pressure. The sites are roomy with a convenient grouping of the utilities in the rear. Close enough to Durango to take in all there is to do there as well.

Date of Stay:

The park is split about 50/50 with "full time" spaces and short term rentals. A few of the full time spaces are pretty trashy. There are some trees that offer shade, but will block satellite reception. Sites are very wide, level, with a good grouping of utilities. The sewer connections have a concrete pad around them and on some sites, the connection is too low to screw in and use the 90 degree sewer fitting. Had to resort to the old, 'put a rock on it' solution. My cable never did work even after reporting it to the office and was told someone would come out and take a look at it. WiFi was weak and often slow. Verizon MyFi worked fine with a strong cell signal. Nice indoor pool. Big signs in the showers telling folks the water will be very hot when someone flushes the toilet. So why not just fix it instead of putting up signs?

Date of Stay:

Nice park and very convenient to Moab and the National/State Parks. Only concern is that many of the sites were not very level. The shorter pull-throughs have a hump, making it difficult to level the RV and have room to park a tow vehicle behind or in front. The irrigation system had a wild spray pattern and coated both our tow vehicle and coach. After looking at several of the other campgrounds in the area, I would stay here again.

Thousand Lakes RV Park

Torrey, Utah

I would echo the other reviewer comments about the amenities of the park. My only concern was that one evening my EMS unit twice locked out the shore power due to a severe undervoltage of <104V. I reported it to the office and was told "my husband will look into it." The next day I approached the Assistant Manager and asked if he had any idea what caused the problem. He said he knew nothing about it but would look into it. I expected that someone would have gotten back to me with an explanation or at least to say they looked into it and couldn't find a problem, however no one ever did. Unfortunately not everyone uses an EMS and an undervoltage can do some extensive damage to electrical equipment, particularly the AC units.

Date of Stay:

The rate reflects their posted rate since the GS or other discount just about takes care of the typical Utah tax of 10.25%. Quick check-in and was assigned an easy pull through. Plenty of room to park the car in front of the RV. Good location and grouping for the sewer and electric, although the water spigot was fairly far forward in the site. Quiet despite being right on US-89 running through town. Nice central location if you are combining stops at Cedar Breaks and Red Canyon as well as Bryce Canyon. Would stay here again.
