St. Vrain State Park, Longmont, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This may not be the most attractive state park around, but it does have a lot going for it. Full hookups for $30, very large, spacious sites, plenty of places to walk with trails around most of the many small lakes, excellent Verizon and AT&T coverage, and a reasonable drive to Longmont and Boulder. Sites are completely level concrete, with a covered gravel picnic area. When outside we can hear the interstate but it's far enough to not be loud or bothersome. The full-hookup section is mostly wide open with few, if any, trees, and is all dirt roads so our car was a mess, and when walking our dog outside we had to deal with lots of dust when other cars drove by. The electric-only section of the campground has paved roads, many mature trees, and is much prettier. We had to deal with some mosquitoes but it wasn't bad compared to some other spots we've camped recently. We'll return in the future to spend more time exploring the Boulder area. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Motorhome.

Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We found this to be a nice, attractive campground, but then again we like wooded/natural settings more than rows of concrete. We only had a 30-amp connection, but while it was hot in Denver, this park is 2,000 feet higher and the air was cool enough that we didn't need our air conditioners. We had no sewer connection, but since we were only there two nights it wasn't a problem. It's very surprising that guests need to pay to use the dump station. Our electric and water hookups were on the wrong side, so we had to run the wire and hose under the coach, right to the middle of our camping area. The RV sites are a little closer together than we'd normally find in a public park. Our site #9 was pretty unlevel for our motorhome (low in back), but a shorter RV probably wouldn't have as much issue with the slope. AT&T had 2 bars of LTE and decent speeds, Verizon had 2 bars of LTE and was pretty slow. We didn't bother trying our cell booster. The interstate noise was noticeable when we were outside but it wasn't a bother. There's a trail right out from the campground, and a 1.5+ mile dirt road loop around Genesee Park which was great for our dog walks. Walmart is a mile away. We'd stay here again if we could find a better site (more level, sewer and/or 50-amp connection, utilities on the correct side). We camped at Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground in a Motorhome.

Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

This isn't the kind of RV park we'd normally stay at, but we ended up here due to a problem with our motorhome that required us to change plans at the last minute. Every other place we called was sold out, but Dakota Ridge had spots available for a few days (we had to move sites once) and the staff was friendly and helpful at getting us a reservation. The park is conveniently located for visiting Denver and Golden, we had strong AT&T and Verizon signal, and the free WiFi worked reasonably well, though not exactly fast. Our sites were decently level, though we saw many other rigs with wheels up in the air or many leveling blocks under the tires. The pull-through sites are arranged in alternating directions so on your driver's side you are right next to your neighbor and share utilities between you, and you share your camping area with your other neighbor's camping area. We do not like this arrangement any time we come across it. There's a trail up a steep hill behind the park that leads to an open field with ATV trails criss-crossing it, where we walked our dog. The park has a lot of dog rules and in addition to signing them, we were told when checking in that our dog not be tied outside with us, nor could fencing be put up, and dogs aren't even allowed to be walked on guests RV sites, only the small (non-fenced) designated dog area. By the time we were leaving however, we'd noticed that many of the other residents there had dog fences, dogs tied outside with no one outside, etc. There's a fair bit of noise from the main road and nearby businesses. The park will not accept mail or packages for you. Interior roads are a little tight but manageable. While we are glad we found someplace to land for our repairs, and the staff was friendly and helpful, this isn't a park we're likely to come back to, especially at $63/night (Good Sam + tax). We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park (Fruita Section), Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very modern and nice campground that has a lot going for it. Sites are nicely spaced with a fair bit of privacy, perfectly level concrete pads, large gravel patios with shelter roofs, wide smooth roads, and full hookups available for a great price. It's a short walk down to the Colorado River for our Lab to get wet before longer walks around the campground or the paved sidewalk to the community center. Verizon and AT&T both had strong signal and fast speeds. It's only a mile or two to restaurants and stores in the small but cute town of Fruita, and not much farther to all that Grand Junction offers. Check-in was smooth and friendly and our annual CO parks pass was still active from last year so we didn't have extra admission fees. Our only problem with the campground was the inescapable swarms of biting mosquitoes. We couldn't go outside our RV for more than a few seconds without getting lots of bites. This one factor made our stay considerably less enjoyable and is why I can't give the park a perfect score. Mosquitoes are a fact of life and we use repellent in plenty of parks, but the ones here were some of the worst we've encountered. We camped at James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park (Fruita Section) in a Motorhome.

Steinaker State Park Campground, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This state park is in a convenient location, only about 5 miles from town, and a half-hour drive from Dinosaur National Monument or Flaming Gorge. The campground is very small, and looks a bit old and tired compared to many other state park campgrounds we've stayed in. Our site was pretty large with plenty of privacy which was nice. There are 7 or so full hookup sites which is a nice surprise for a state park, and they're reasonably priced. Unfortunately most of them are on a steep hill so most of those sites are not level. Our 37' motorhome and tow car had no problem fitting in our pull-through site, but we had to drive our back tires up onto about 5 inches of stacked boards for leveling. The rest of the sites are electric-only or no hookups, and we did hear a few generators running from rigs in the no hookup sites. There's a vault toilet near site #8 which was pretty stinky. AT&T and Verizon were almost unusable until we put up our booster... then they were decent but definitely not fast. The state park was pretty quiet during the week but during the weekend it was packed with boaters, jet skiers, paddle boarders, and others having fun out on the lake. We found a nice secluded beach near the campground where our dog loved going in for a swim every day, but otherwise there's not much in the way of trails for longer hikes out of the campground. When exiting the campground we ran into some major low-hanging branches near site 28. We had high winds every day, so we could never use our awning for shade. Not sure if this was unusual or normal for the area. The gate to the state park closes at 10pm but we never had reason to be out that late. Overall this is a nice scenic campground, but site selection should be done carefully depending on your rig size, and you should have a cell booster if you want connectivity. We camped at Steinaker State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Fairgrounds, Rock Springs, Wyoming

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

We stayed here overnight while passing through. Although there are 1200+ sites, only the small main campground section was open in mid-June when we visited. We arrived on a Friday which means events were happening at the fairgrounds (high school rodeo finals, and stock car race). The friendly caretaker took our money, pointed us to the north-west corner and said there should be a few empty spaces left in that area. We found some, but the campground was nearly full and was a mess with RVs, horse trailers, pickup trucks, ATVs, and more, parked randomly all over. Despite the number of campers there, noise was minimal.

We backed into a site (with our 37' motorhome sticking out into the lane) and had nowhere to put our tow car other than in the empty site next to us (much like everyone else did). The dirt roads had large ruts in them where they met the main campground road, which required some extra care when pulling out. Since the whole campground area is just gravel, found a grassy area around the main fairgrounds parking lot for our dog walks. Verizon worked pretty well, AT&T was slow.

This was an OK spot for an overnight, but we may have actually been more comfortable in the nearby Walmart parking lot for the night. Clearly the RV sites exist primarily to serve the rodeo participants and not travelers, so I understand the shortcomings of the location. I expect if there weren't events happening and the campground was less crowded, it would be a more reasonable spot for an overnight stop. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa Campground, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here a week to re-stock supplies and catch up on chores after 2 weeks visiting Grand Teton and Yellowstone. There's quite a variety of sites: from gravel or concrete back-ins with trees, to parking-lot style sites (yellow lines painted on asphalt) for some smaller RVs, to long gravel pull-throughs in a different section with no trees. Our back-in site right along the highway was level, and while we had a small grassy lawn between us and our neighbor, the sites were pretty close together. The highway noise was worse than we expected. Lots of loud trucks, loud cars, and loud motorcycles going by all day long.

The campground WiFi worked surprisingly well, which was good since even with our booster AT&T was unusably slow all day and Verizon had only two bars and was very slow in the evenings. There's a steep road down to the tent area near the river and we walked with our dog there a couple times, but otherwise didn't find anyplace good nearby for longer walks. We found the Cody dog park a couple miles away which had a large fenced park with lake access so we ended up going there on several evenings (local folks show up around 5:30pm). This is a good place for a night or two on the way in or out of Yellowstone and we'd certainly stay here again for that purpose, but probably wouldn't stay a week next time. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Thanks to previous reviews, we knew what we were getting into, and the campground met those expectations. Loops ABCD have nice smooth paved roads, with uneven gravel sites. Loops EFG have uneven dirt roads with lots of potholes, but nice paved sites. Very strange! We had some trouble backing our 37' motorhome into our site (due to tree proximity) but eventually got it done. Our site was very unlevel so we needed to drive onto some leveling blocks before using our jacks. Our tow car barely fit next to the motorhome on our camping side, leaving no space for anything else. Our view out front was a nice stand of tall pine trees, but of course out the side windows was our neighbor's motorhome just a foot or two away. Given the size of the campground we had plenty of space to walk our dog, which was nice. We had no AT&T signal even with our booster. Verizon had good signal, but was completely unusable except for the most basic of functions (e.g. sending a text e-mail). The campground's location is great, which is obviously why we and others stayed there. We spent a week in West Yellowstone and did most of our sight-seeing from there, then stayed two nights in Fishing Bridge to catch a few of the eastern Yellowstone attractions. This plan worked well for us. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice RV park... clean, well maintained, and organized. Although the sites aren't exactly spacious, they are not as close together as I feared, and our back-in site was more than wide enough for us to not feel claustrophobic. Even better, our site backed up to the national forest where there were lots of trails for us to walk our dog. Our 36' motorhome and tow car just barely fit in the back-in site (some days we parked our car in the overflow parking lot). Larger rigs will either want the back-in sites that have a car pad next to them, or a pull through site. Our gravel site was nice and level. The WiFi worked fairly well especially during the day when everyone is visiting Yellowstone. They issue WiFi codes for up to two devices. Our AT&T and Verizon both worked well. They accept mail and packages for guests, but have two different addresses for US Mail vs. UPS/FedEx deliveries, which means Amazon orders are problematic. Our only complaint (not their fault) was the swarms of giant mosquitos (biggest we've seen) around the park, and even worse in the adjacent national forest. We stayed at the beginning of the season... in fact our first night was $35 since it was the off-season rate, then it went up to $65 for the rest of our stay. We'd definitely return. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wolf Den RV Park, Thayne, Wyoming

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

We only stayed here overnight between Salt Lake City and Grand Teton/Yellowstone. We stayed in a pull-through which was plenty long and wide for us, and mostly level. All the sites are in a big gravel lot with some fence posts separating them. Utilities worked fine, and WiFi was decent if not fast. $40 seemed a bit high for such a basic, "middle of nowhere" RV park with few amenities. We walked our dog around the RV park and motel, but didn't find anyplace else good for walks as all the adjacent roads were fairly busy, and the RV park borders active farms where I assume the farm owners don't want us trespassing. Not much else to say... fine (but expensive) for an overnight, probably wouldn't stay longer. We camped at Wolf Den RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park City RV Resort, Park City, Utah

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

We only stayed one night while passing through. This is a pretty small RV resort and we didn't see much to distinguish it from other resorts. As others have noted, a small number of concrete full-hookup "resort" sites next to the interstate (a mix of pull-through, back-in, and pull-in), and then some partial-hookup "campground" style sites down a dirt road and over the back of the hill next to the river. We stayed in the resort section and the highway noise wasn't awful, but it was always there. Our site was a pull-in (not back-in) which was a bit awkward getting into since we had to come in through the resort's exit to get the right angle. The campground section seems nice enough and is much quieter and has a great view of the river rushing by but the entire campground section was muddy due to recent rain/snow. As expected (based on their RV age rules for the resort section) the upper section was mostly new/big motorhomes and fifth wheels, the lower campground section was mostly older trailers, but appeared clean and well kept. If we stay here again we'll consider the campground section instead of the resort section. The WiFi wasn't super fast but worked decently which is fine by us. The fenced dog park is tiny and entirely crushed rock, so we never used it. Instead we walked our dog along the river and campground section. This seems to be a decent place to stay at when visiting Park City. We camped at Park City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mountain Valley RV Resort, Heber City, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very well organized and well run RV resort. The sites are fairly close together, but not right on top of each other, and there's a wide variety of site sizes (and prices) to suit anyone's needs. There's a giant new section that just opened up (May 2017) that has very long and wide sites (all concrete, no grass), while the original section (which is still quite new) has grass and small trees between sites. Both sections have fenced dog parks, but the dog park in the new section is huge. Being a resort, there are pools, hot tubs, a playground, pickleball, etc. It's only a mile or so outside of Heber City and has spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The WiFi works pretty well while we were there... not super fast, but fast enough that we could watch the occasional YouTube video without difficulty. Our AT&T was fast, and Verizon had good signal but was a bit slow. We were able to receive both US mail and UPS deliveries at the resort. The only complaint we have is that the sites in our section (P) were unlevel and required several wood blocks under our front wheels and jacks before our levelers could work. If you like RV resorts, this is a great one. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Distant Drums RV Resort, Camp Verde, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very clean, but very crowded RV resort. In our section of back-in sites, motorhomes and fifth wheels were crammed together with their tow vehicles like a jigsaw puzzle, and the park was 100% full. Cars get parked next to their motorhomes on the camping side, with the row behind offset by one so that our motorhome backed up to our neighbor's car behind us, and their motorhome was backed in almost to our car. Thus, sites overlap, there is little or no "camping space" available, and parts of motorhomes or trailers are literally right next to the motorhome in the row behind. I've never seen overlapping sites like this before. There were other parts of the resort that had more expensive sites with better spacing. Decorative shrubs along the side of our site made it difficult to get into our wet bay to hook up our water and sewer. On the bright side, our site was very level. After we checked in we were told to wait for an escort to our site. Unfortunately we waited 20 minutes (no exaggeration) for an escort to take us the 200 yards to our site. After the first 15 minutes of waiting I asked the desk if I could just drive there myself but they said due to liability reasons we have to wait for an escort. We saw several of the WiFi access points with strong signal but were never able to connect to any of them. Our Verizon and AT&T worked well. There is a decent-sized fenced dog park, and a dirt road leading out of the campground to a Forest Service road which was great for longer walks. Despite the proximity to the interstate, highway noise was not a major problem, which was nice. We were able to receive a UPS delivery at the resort, which was another plus. Electric worked very well, but water pressure was low. We filled our tank (slowly) and used our RV's water pump instead. We might stay here for a night or two in the future when we need full hookups, but might look for someplace a little less cramped instead. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cave Creek Regional Park, Cave Creek, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

It's hard to go wrong with any of the state or county parks in the Phoenix/Tucson area, and Cave Creek was no exception. The park is very pretty, with lots of desert vegetation throughout. Our site was huge and very private, but you do need to be careful picking a site. There's one section of the campground that was previously group camping but is now available for regular reservations, and those sites are close together with little privacy. Also, while on satellite view many sites look long enough to handle big rigs, some of those have very steep slopes at the front of the site, making them unsuitable. Our back-in site was one of the most level we saw, and we needed to put wood blocks under our motorhome's front wheels before leveling. There are some great dog-friendly hiking trails in the park, including a trailhead inside the campground that leads to all the other trails. AT&T and Verizon both worked but were weak/slow. We set up our booster and then had great reception. The showers at Cave Creek are decent but could use some updating. First of all, although each bath house has two men's and two women's showers, one of each is handicapped accessible and has the shower head mounted permanently at about waist-height, making them unusable for the rest of us. All the showers have a single push-button that turns on the water for a minute or so, with no temperature adjustment. The water was usually (but not always) hot, but it would be nice to be able to adjust the temperature or pressure. The town of Cave Creek is a few miles away with restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed the park and would stay here again. We camped at Cave Creek Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Mesa / Apache Junction KOA, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice looking in-town KOA, with most sites a little close together, but the trees and landscaping make it feel pretty nice. The "dog park" was disappointing: a tiny, 10 foot by 10 foot chain link fenced area. We did find a large empty field across the street that we used for dog walks. We tried the WiFi but found it to be unusable, but our AT&T and Verizon both worked well. Our site was unusually wide, but poorly laid out, with the electric and water hookup in the far back-right corner, and the sewer literally 60 feet away in the front-left. There was no way to position our motorhome to reach all the utilities, even parked diagonally across the site. The campground said many sites have utilities in strange places so they have 50-amp extension cables they loan to guests, but they were all loaned out already. They instead loaned us a 30-amp extension cable, and a water hose since our two 25-foot hoses combined were not long enough to reach the spigot. We asked to be moved but were told no other sites were available. I asked if we could be charged for a 30-amp site instead of the 50-amp site we reserved, since there was no way for us to access the 50-amp connection but the office said no. Once we were plugged in, our Progressive EMS kept shutting down power to our rig due to low voltage (below 104 volts). A camp host tested the pedestal, saw low voltage, but said there was nothing he could do. Another camp host we spoke with later said there have been other electrical problems and the system will be upgraded this summer. The next morning we asked to be moved, as there was an empty site 2 sites down (as suggested by a camp host) but were told all sites are already reserved. No one ever checked into that site during our stay. The person in the office didn't seem very interested in helping find a solution for us. We made it through our two night stay, using as little electricity as possible, and left frustrated. We will not return. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Motorhome.
