Hidden Village RV Park & Campground, Lynden, Washington

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

This is a rustic destination resort very near the Canadian border with lots of space for children, who were having a ball in the last few days before school resumed. Office personnel were friendly and helpful. Rate is after getting 1 day free for a week's stay. Sites were on grass, very brown after drought. Many trees meant few sites where a satellite dish would work. Mt. Baker could been seen in good weather except when large RV next door. We camped at Hidden Village RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Lots better stores and restaurants in Bellingham, 6 miles to the South, than Lynden, 3 miles to north. Easy drive to Artist Point very near Mt. Baker and glaciers. For those with a 4WD toad, Twin Lakes was a moderately challenging drive with beautiful scenery at the top.

Lake Pleasant RV Park, Bothell, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This "destination resort" has a lot of stuff for children but it's showing its age. The outer circle of sites are assigned mostly to transients and are generally not level although made of ancient concrete. Inner circle sites sport newer concrete and are used mostly by long-term campers. Entire camp is very crowded. No Wi-Fi. Speed limit is an iconoclastic 8 1/2 mph (13.68 kph). Airport is 31 miles away but closer parks are filled with construction workers. OK to wash vehicles and RVs. The 2 lakes are more like ponds but "Pond Pleasant" just doesn't have the same ring. We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Motorhome.

Outback RV Park, Rochester, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Last-minute decision after the nearby Love's was full. Full service pull- through but the single most crowded conditions seen outside of a RV dealer's lot. Lots of seasonals/permanent residents. Site was satisfactory, level, full hookup, etc. Would have preferred the truck stop. We camped at Outback RV Park in a Motorhome.

Gig Harbor RV Resort, Gig Harbor, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was amazingly level given that this camp is on a terraced hill. Pricey but very close to the harbor with good restaurants and watersports. Gig Harbor is close to the Tacoma Narrows bridge and 45 minutes from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Parks nearer the airport are full of construction workers. WiFi was worthless. If you're leaving the windows open on a temperate evening, you'll hear shots from a nearby firing range until 10 pm or so. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Shadow Mountain Campground RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

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

Can't see the mountains from most sites because trees have been allowed to go unpruned for years. Satellite dishes and WiFi unusable. No cable TV. Most pads have only 30 amp service. The park and adjacent general store are for sale. The new owner will have to fix all these problems to bring the campground up to modern standards. It's 15 miles out of Port Angeles, a charming place with good restaurants and ambiance. Distance is only a minor factor for Olympia National Park, which has at least four entrances, two of them in town. We camped at Shadow Mountain Campground RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
