Spokane RV Resort, Deer Park, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent resort near golf course. Deer Park is 18 miles north of Spokane, however, but the town has its own personal charm from a founders parade to a fully-stocked Ace Hardware and restaurants where the staff is happy to see you. The virtues (and since a recent referendum) vices of Spokane are a half-hour away. Dynamite WiFi, other facilities including pool and laundry ($1.25 a load) were very good. The Resort allows, even encourages, vehicle washing as long as you don't splash a neighbor's equipment, unlikely given the spaciousness and lush green grass between pads. Be very careful using Google Maps on approach; unless since corrected it will cause you to turn in a tight driveway for a housing development 1/4 mile too soon. We camped at Spokane RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Kahnderosa River Campground, Cataldo, Idaho

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

This park is another example of a good place to overnight: asphalt driveways, level concrete pads, full service pull-throughs, maybe a bit pricey for a one-nighter. Then, there's the moose. A quarter-mile down a bike path around sunrise and sunset, two adult moose and at least one baby chomp their way through waterlilies in a slough (think "swamp"). A least they did in mid-July. See the manager for exact times. Contrary to an earlier report, this place is not closed. (They did shut down for two weeks when the paving was put in.) We camped at Kahnderosa River Campground in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Park, Arco, Idaho

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

Mountain View has friendly staff; all sites are pull-throughs; dynamite Wi-Fi is included, as are the advertised mountain views. Prior policy of allowing washing of vehicles has been suspended because of a water shortage. Fortunately the shortage is not so severe as to prevent watering the grass in the areas separating the vehicles. Picnic tables and charcoal grills are provided at each site. Arco is a town of 994 people but lots to do in the area. The Park is 18 miles from Craters of the Moon National Monument, a must-see even if you have experienced flowing lava. Elsewhere Experimental Breeder Reactor#1, now a museum, was the first nuclear facility in the U.S. to produce electricity. For those with a high-clearance 4WD toad, the park and neighboring areas have plenty of rough roads. Nearby Mackey has a self tour of abandoned mines and equipment, and there is a natural bridge a Jeep ride and a moderate hike away. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The middle third of the so-called Arco-Minidoka road is an off-road challenge. The Minidoka National Historic Site of a WWII Japanese internment camp, however, is 48 miles to the west of the town. There are lots of fishing sites in the area but not many fish in the heat of July. There is a Hemingway Nature Preserve near Picabo. For food in Arco, there are a few mom & pop places and the Mountain View Park has a small restaurant.

Sand Hollow State Park, Hurricane, Utah

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

This is in the desert with beautiful colored cliffs to the north but daytime highs in June in triple digits with single digit humidity. Despite that this state park is an excellent jumping off spot for Zion National Park, Kolob Canyons and St. George, ut. Friendly office staff has souvenirs plus 10-pounds of ice for $3. Walmart Supercenter is nearby. Other side of the park is a OHV playground in the red sands. A reservoir is in the middle, with a warning about "Swimmers Itch", courtesy of bird droppings. Best grocery is Harmon's in St. George. Area northwest of St. George has grand sandstone of many varieties. Had to use a couple of boards to level our asphalt site. Picnic table had a roof to protect from the sun. Great sunsets. We camped at Sand Hollow State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Leave for Zion around 8 a.m. to get there by 9 and park inside. Lots usually full by 10 a.m. After a day of crowded hikes, return with bicycles, ride the shuttle to the top and then take a mostly downhill ride alongside the magnificent mountains away from the madding crowds.

Kaibab CampeRVillage, Jacob Lake, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

For a quiet, cool stay nestled among whispering pines, this is the place for you. Nearest full-hookup park to the Grand Canyon North Rim and great jumping off point for Vermilion Cliffs and Pipe Springs national monuments, etc. If you cannot abide the lack of satellite (those whispering pines, again), Wi-Fi or a 50-amp hookup, this is not the place for you. We had a great ten days but blew out a month's worth of Verizon hot spot data. Nearest groceries 37 miles away in Kanab, UT, closest package liquor at the Buckskin Bar in north Fredonia, 32 miles.

Fuel available less than a mile from the camp. Yes, there is a 1/2 mile of bumpy road to get to Kaibab CamperVillage but it's worth it.

Visit the alternate National Park viewing sites, Point Imperial and Port Royal. Many driveable trails in the adjoining National Forest will take you to beautiful and nearly deserted Grand Canyon viewing points. Great maps available at the Forest Service office up the road, along with suggested hiking and driving trips. If you try unpaved roads other than those on the suggested trips, do so in a high clearance 4WD vehicle. We camped at Kaibab CampeRVillage in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

A couple hours at the Pipe Springs National Monument west of Fredonia will awaken you to issues during the settling of the West you never considered. Travel to off-road sites in the Vermilion cliff area is best done with a HC 4WD and towing insurance, but the Condor Site is a few miles up the unpaved road shown on maps is okay for passenger cars. Bring good binoculars.

Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails), Cottonwood, Arizona

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

Thousand Trails is the park of last resort near the Sedona Red Rock Country. It's 5 miles from Cottonwood and another 18 from Sedona. Was only facility available for Memorial Day weekend and was packed, mostly with families with kids and dogs who seemed to enjoy just being in the desert. Sites are unassigned; you drive around until you find one you like which we consider an abdication of management's responsibilities. No Wi-Fi at sites and very slow internet at pools. Speed limit varies from 5-10 mph, including the mile-plus drive from front entrance to sites. Staff in carts cut in front of vehicles thought to be going too fast - a dangerous practice considering severe dropoffs without guardrails on the entry road. Would stay again only if desperate. We camped at Verde Valley RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Excellent dining at Nick's in old Cottonwood. Tuzigoot National Monument worth a half day. Ruben's is excellent shop for minor car/RV repairs.

OK RV Park, Holbrook, Arizona

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

No frills campground in the middle of the desert makes a good jumping-off spot for nearby Petrified Forest and Painted Hills national parks. Meteor Crater, AZ, is an easy hour to the West. Helpful staff, free coffee and muffins most mornings. Abundant trees exist only because of daily irrigation. We camped at OK RV Park in a Motorhome.

Holbrook has several okay mom & pop restaurants. Watch the introductory movie at Petrified Forest to understand what you'll be seeing. Ditto for Meteor Crater (privately owned, $18 admission, $16 for seniors, but it is the best-preserved impact crater in the world). Best diesel prices in the middle of the small town.

Monahans Sandhills State Park, Monahans, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

No "stay off the dunes" signs here. Visitor interaction is encouraged. Park staff even rents discs for sliding down the sandy hills. Rather short hours: discs have to be returned by 4 p.m. to the office, a 1 1/2 mile away from the camping sites. Good exhibit of how sandhills are formed at the office with extras, sounds of birds, etc. Some pull-throughs best entered by turning around at the dump station and entering through the camping exit road. Short nature trail. Stay here when your RV is dirty; you'll leave with sand inside and out. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.

RiverBend RV Park and Campground, Luling, Texas

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

The campground has a bit of everything, from a river (the San Marcos, with several bends) to volleyball net, catch-and-release pond to small swimming pool. Select exit path with care to avoid low trees. Didn't see trash other reviewers noted. We camped at RiverBend RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

St. James RV Park, Saint James, Louisiana

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

It's several acres of gravel and full hookups, no more and no less, closer than other campgrounds to plantations such as Laura and Oak Alley. About 25% of of the 100+ sites are occupied by unoffensive long-term construction workers on gigantic nearby projects, such as the largest ammonia plant in North America. Most of the other spaces were vacant when we were there. A half-dozen sites are pull-throughs but you could back an 18-wheeler into most of the other ones. Showers and a laundry are at the center but that's it: no playgrounds, stocked ponds, 24-hour security, hot tubs, etc. Laura Plantation (13 miles away) had guides who gave the best balance of architecture and (somewhat gruesome) history, complete with the owners' suites and ads for fugitive slaves. Our guide provided an excellent explanation of how the slave system worked, complete with a person's status being determined by who's your mother (rather than your possibly philandering father). Didn't visit Oak Alley but it seemed to be a fabulous wedding site. We camped at St. James RV Park in a Motorhome.

Houmas House across the river presented the fancy lifestyle of the ante bellum rich and famous (best seen with a mint julep from the Turtle House in hand). Sophisticated cooking at DJ's in Vacherie or you can order a pizza there, also.

Pensacola RV Park, Pensacola, Florida

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

Park is a good "value" alternative compared to camps on or near the beach. Mostly very long and wide pull-through sites in a field with few trees; some shaded back-ins around periphery. Extremely friendly staff. Ice was $2 for 10# on a "help yourself, pay us when you see us basis." Flat gravel sites. No rule against washing vehicles. Park is the second RV park after turning onto Wilde Lake Blvd. Minor traffic noise from I-10; nearby rooster is louder. We camped at Pensacola RV Park in a Motorhome.

Don't miss the Naval Aviation Museum. Weekend drive to Fort Pikens on Pensacola Beach had horrendous traffic but the fort was interesting. Shux for seafood downtown, next to park with food trucks. Palafox Bistro a bit of a drive but has an outstanding breakfast.

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This state park has "cattle car" camping more often found in commercial parks with RVs jammed together, at least in Camping Area 1. Sites were heavily sloped. Other facilities were nice: well marked trails, horseback riding and an olympic-size swimming pool(closed for the season). We camped at Cedars of Lebanon State Park in a Motorhome.

Great place for kids to have a camping experience. Varied trails. Beautiful lookouts. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.
