Greer's Pine Shadows, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We only stayed overnight while passing through Flagstaff, so this review will be brief. The location was great: easy to get to, and close to lots of stores. The entrance off the highway was in poor condition (broken pavement) so we had to drive very slowly going in and out. Interior roads are a little tight but manageable. Most of the sites are very close together, but I think those are mostly for weekly/monthly stays. For our overnight stay we had a very long and wide pull-through with a privacy fence--It was a great site for us. There was free WiFi but we found it too slow to be useful. The RV park backs up to the National Forest, with a trail directly into the forest from the park, great for dog walks. We would stay here again for a few nights (in the large sites). We camped at Greer's Pine Shadows in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Summit Regional Park, Bonita, California

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We really wanted to enjoy this park, but the ants ruined it for us. We'd read various reviews that mentioned them so we chose a site in the new section with concrete pads hoping for the best. But first, the rest of the review. When we arrived we were told that the site we reserved (#126) was going to be too short for our 37' motorhome, so they moved us into a spare site (#70) which was much longer. Great service! The sites in the new section are wide with good spacing between sites, sites ranging from short (35') to super long (probably 80'). Although our site was a pull-through, we had to back-out due to a steep and uneven crest at the front of the site where we would have bottomed out. There's lots of low-lying desert vegetation between sites which provides a green barrier, but there are no trees, so sites don't have any privacy. The older section is heavily wooded with tall trees, but the sites are smaller and closer together. In the new section the western-most sites (#115-#135) get some constant highway noise from route 125. We also had helicopters flying right overhead quite often, many times per day. The adjacent lake is actually a water reservoir, so it's completely fenced off, much to our dog's dismay. Instead we drove him downtown to one of the dog beaches several times during our stay so he could swim. There's a supermarket (Vons) and some stores a few miles west in Bonita, but for big box stores, malls, theaters, etc. you'll need to drive around 15 minutes south. AT&T and Verizon both worked well. When using your GPS, be sure to specify "Sweetwater Summit Regional Park". If you leave off "Summit" it will take you to a different park a mile away. Now for the ants: they were out in force in July, including in the new section. We surrounded our site, power, water, and sewer with diatomaceous earth but still had swarms of ants inside the rig several times. Unfortunately, this is the main reason we don't plan to return. It was too hard to keep them out. We camped at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Mission Bay RV Resort, San Diego, California

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $68.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this park solely due to location, and were expecting to dislike it due to it being a "crowded parking lot" style park. We were actually pleasantly surprised once we checked in, even though we picked a "standard" size site, the cheapest available. The sites were much wider than we expected.. you're still close to your neighbor but there is enough breathing room to set up your chairs, tables, patio mat, etc. and have a nice outdoor area. Other city-style RV parks we've been to had much less space. The many mature trees soften the asphalt feel of the place, and most rows (ours included) are separated by a strip of grass behind the RVs. The sites are a little shorter than we'd like. With our 37' motorhome parked as far back as possible, our tow car parked sideways in front took up a bit of space in the road. Now picture an entire row like that, with tow cars lining both sides of the road, and it gets difficult for new arrivals to back into a site. We were steps away from the peninsula beach where we walked and swam our dog morning and evening. Utilities worked great, including the WiFi which worked well most of them time, only slowing down in the early evening. We had 3 bars of LTE on Verizon and 2 bars on AT&T. Both worked fine without the need for a booster. There was LOTS of activity at the park... kids on bikes, scooters, etc. all over the place, all the time, so drive carefully! We're thinking of returning for a month in the winter when the rates are much lower. We camped at Mission Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Zion Canyon Campground & RV Park, Springdale, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

$42 was the weekly rate. The campground is in an ideal location for visiting Zion, and is walking distance to stores and restaurants in Springdale. The town shuttle stops at the entrance to the campground, and will take you all through Springdale or drop you off just outside the Zion entrance, or you can walk to the Zion entrance from the campground. Verizon and AT&T worked well. The sites are extremely tight, especially for big rigs with tow vehicles. We lucked out and were assigned to what was one of the biggest sites in the RV park (which was still pretty small). The Virgin River runs around the edge of the park, and just on the other side of the river is the national park's Watchman Campground, so campers from both parks lined the river daily swimming and relaxing. We swam our dog in the river during our walks to keep him cool (temperatures were in the 90's during our visit), and waded across the river ourselves. The location and river were the highlights for us. The site size was the big negative for us. We'd consider returning, but may instead try the adjacent National Park campground next time instead. We camped at Zion Canyon Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid the weekly rate of $34/night ($38 with tax) for one of the lake view sites. Normally we're fine with the cheapest sites available, but the price difference was relatively small when renting weekly. The pull-in lake view sites face north-east which was a big help for us since it was 110+ degrees during our stay in June and this angle kept the sun off our big windshield for most of the day. The lake view sites are new and quite nice... wide, level, concrete, and with a gravel car parking area next to each site. The older part of the campground is all gravel, and with much smaller sites. Most of the park is filled with mobile homes that were vacant during our stay, though a few owners came out during the weekend. It's a mile or so walk to the "special events beach" where dogs are allowed, but since it was so hot we drove our dog there each day (along a bumpy/rocky dirt road) instead of walking him. Just don't park too close to the water... there are many areas where the sand is really mud and you sink down quickly. The main beach area has a paved road and parking area but no dogs are allowed there. We did walk our dog daily through the heavily wooded adjacent no-hookup campground which was convenient given the intense heat/sun (the full hookup campground has no trees/shade). Boulder City is only a few miles away (up a 1,000+ foot hill) and has plenty of restaurants and stores. We got only 1 bar of AT&T LTE at our site but it was fast and reliable, and 3 bars of Verizon LTE which worked well (we didn't use our booster during our stay here). The campground WiFi didn't reach our site at the far end of the park. We camped at Lake Mead RV Village in a Motorhome.

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the electric+water area in the Atlatl campground. It is certainly a scenic area and a nice campground, and we had a pair of bighorn sheep grazing just a couple hundred feet from our motorhome one day. The gravel roads are extremely dusty... by the time we pulled into a campsite our tow car was coated in dust/dirt. Almost all the sites we looked at were fairly unlevel... blocks under the wheels and jacks were necessary. Many sites are pull-in (instead of back-in), and there were a few pull-throughs. Some had their picnic area in the back of the site, others at the side of the site. We got there pretty early (noon) on a Sunday and were the only rig in the park so we had our choice of sites... by evening about 1/3 of the sites were occupied. Most of the sites have plenty of space between them, and have lengths suitable from a small class C to a 45' motorhome towing a trailer. There were warning signs that bees like to congregate around any water source, and we saw them at our spigot (which had a slow drip). We had solid 3G Verizon, and with our booster turned on we got 4 bars of LTE. AT&T was limited to Edge connectivity with and without the booster. Unfortunately it was 110 degrees during our short stay in June so we didn't get out and explore much, but we do want to return to the area in the future for a proper visit and will gladly stay here again. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Motorhome.

Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground, Bryce Canyon, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week, and it worked well as our base while exploring the area. It's only a mile or two to drive into Bryce Canyon, and the park's shuttle stops at the campground every 15 minutes or so. It's also fairly close to Red Canyon, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Kodachrome Basin. We stayed in the new section in the back which has huge sites... some have nice grass lawns and gravel patios, but ours was just dirt. The trees are sparse and young so expect full sun. The rest of the campground is much larger, full of mature trees providing full shade. The sites in this older section are much closer together but still reasonable. The WiFi worked reasonably well during the day, and not surprisingly slowed down a lot in the evenings. We had a week cell signal but it was usable, and with our booster it was much better. We found this to be a perfectly acceptable campground for visiting Bryce, and will consider it again if we return to the area. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Kanab RV Corral, Kanab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We needed a spot in Kanab for a few days and this was the best of limited choices. It's very conveniently located, and you can walk to a variety of stores nearby. It was also relatively quiet for being "in town". The WiFi was amazingly fast, better than 95% of RV parks we've stayed at. The big drawback for us is that the sites are very narrow, and many back-in sites (ours included) have a tree on both sides at the entrance to the site, making backing in a challenge. There's no room for error, and the tree branches are low enough to rub both sides of our motorhome on the way into the site. Rigs are very close together, no breathing room. There's a tiny fenced dog park, but we glanced at it and kept going, instead walking our bigger dog along some nearby streets. Since it seems to be the best option in town we would consider staying here again if we need to be in Kanab in the future, or we might try to find nearby boondocking instead if the weather is favorable. We camped at Kanab RV Corral in a Motorhome.

Wahweap RV and Campground, Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

The Wahweap Campground is very large, with around ten separate camping loops. We enjoyed our stay in loop B in the full hookup section, which includes A, B, C, D, and F loops (there is no E). A, B, and C are older have more of a "campground" feel, with large sites and good spacing with some privacy between them. There are back-ins and C-shaped pull-throughs in this section. They are terraced, with A being closest to the lake and lowest in elevation, and C being farthest but highest. Loops D and F appear to be newer sections and are laid out more like a commercial RV park, with straight rows of RVs, smaller sites, and little privacy. The pull-throughs in D and F share utilities between adjacent rigs, so that your driver's side is right up against your neighbor's driver's side (they're facing the opposite direction). We don't like that layout at all and are glad we were not in one of these loops. They offer free WiFi but it was very slow. Verizon LTE worked well, and while AT&T was limited to 3G, it was still very fast. The campground store has the basics, but it's only a few miles to the Safeway and Walmart in Page. If you don't have a National Parks pass you'll need to pay a 7-day park entry fee since the campground is inside the National Recreation Area. We asked at the store if we could receive mail and packages and while they said yes and gave us the address to use, we had some issues. We received UPS packages just fine, but our US Mail delivery made it to Page and was immediately "returned to sender" due to "invalid address". Our dog loved swimming in the lake every day, and since the campground is so large we found plenty of places to walk him. Unfortunately every walk included a few stops to pull thorns / cactus spines out of his paws. Overall we were very happy with the campground, though we did find it to be a little expensive. If we visit the area again we'll definitely stay here, IF we can get a site in A, B, or C loops. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

While the most obvious draw for Trailer Village is the location (you can walk to the Grand Canyon Visitor Center and South Rim), it's actually a pretty nice campground too. The campground is huge: row after row of pull-through sites, and there was very high turnover. We'd walk our dog in the early afternoon and see the "Campground Full" sign and wonder at the many dozens of empty sites, but by late evening they were all full again, usually with Cruise America, El Monte, or Road Bear rentals. The sites are average in size... don't expect much privacy, but enough space to not feel cramped. Our site was extremely unlevel, and even with all our wood blocks and leveling jacks we could not get level (a first for us) and had to settle for a slightly crooked stay. We saw many other RVs in a similar predicament, though plenty of other sites looked fairly level. Our Verizon hotspot worked pretty well in LTE, and AT&T worked pretty well at 3G. The park shuttle stops at the campground, there's a decent park-run grocery store adjacent to the campground, and lots of trails and paths for dog walking. We saw elk and mule deer in and around the campground almost daily. We paid $36 but a few days after we arrived we saw they changed the sign to read $44. Too bad, $36 was a pretty great rate in our opinion, for full hookups inside a major National Park. If and when we return to Grand Canyon we'll definitely be staying here again. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Rancho Sedona RV Park, Sedona, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week to be close to the various hiking trails in Sedona. When we made our reservation a couple months in advance they were out of regular sites that would fit us, so we had to pay extra for a "larger" site. Our site #55 turned out to be very nice with plenty of space, but some of the smaller/cheaper sites looked to be pretty close together and less attractive. The park does have dozens of rules to follow, but we never had any issues with the rules. This was one of the cleanest and best-maintained parks we've been to. After some rain and wind the staff was immediately out raking leaves and picking up branches. We took our dog down to the creek several times and although it was too shallow for him to swim, he enjoyed getting wet. The fenced dog park is very small so we didn't use it much, but we found a Sedona town dog park a few miles away that was nice. AT&T and Verizon both worked well, and even the campground WiFi was fast and always available, a pleasant surprise! We'd definitely return in the future... we just wish it wasn't so expensive. Our rate was $58/night with Good Sam but after the $2 dog fee and tax it came to $68/night which is one of the highest rates we've ever paid. We camped at Rancho Sedona RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Cottonwood, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a nice state park and a good home base for visiting the surrounding area, including Sedona. However, after staying at many excellent state and county parks in Arizona we found Dead Horse Ranch to be a bit lacking in comparison. Sites were closer together and pretty un-level, showers were smaller and more basic, and the landscape was less attractive (dirt/scrub). That said, it still beats most commercial RV parks... we've just been spoiled by other Arizona campgrounds! The state park has several lakes (lagoons) for fishing and our dog loved to go for a swim in them. It's only a few minutes to Cottonwood, and less than a half hour to Jerome or Sedona. AT&T and Verizon both worked well for us. We stayed in the Red Tail loop. The price ($25) is great, and we'll likely return again if we re-visit the area in the future. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Usery Mountain Regional Park, Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice Maricopa County Park only a few miles from Mesa AZ. There's quite a lot of space between sites, mostly filled with tall/mature cacti and other desert plants. The back-in sites have their "camping area" (picnic table, fire pit, open space) behind the site instead of next to it. The bath houses are about average, but each has only two men's showers and two women's showers so we sometimes had to wait to take a shower, even though the campground was only half full. There's a short "nature trail" in the campground, and several hikes starting at the trailhead a mile or so from the campground. There's plenty of places to walk dogs, but we also took our dogs into Mesa a few times to the huge and popular dog park there. We enjoyed the large, private sites and the proximity to town/shopping, and will likely stay here again. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Sentinel Peak RV Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a tough one for us to rate. As others have said, the location is the main draw for this new RV Park, being very close to downtown Tucson. The downside of being downtown is that the park is little more than a paved RV parking lot with a very thin strip of gravel between each site (check the Google satellite view for details). The RV park was very clean and the camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The price (weekly rate) was good for a downtown park, but the free WiFi is satellite-based and was unusably slow. The city park across the street and down a block (Menlo Park) was a great place to walk our dog each day, since the RV park is tiny and mostly paved. If you want to be close to Tucson and are OK with tight quarters, Sentinel Peak provides a good compromise between location, price, and site/amenities. We camped at Sentinel Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

North Ranch , Congress, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

We only stayed overnight (March 2016) and this RV park was perfectly good for an overnight stay. The price (for Escapees members) was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. The sites and roads are all gravel (typical for a desert RV Park) but we found the sites to be closer together that we like. A little more space would have made a big difference. Our back-in site was along a row of trees which were very nice, but the branches prevented us from backing our rig up as far as we normally would, so we were sticking out into the road a little bit. We had no AT&T signal but Verizon LTE worked well enough. The park recycles paper, plastic, and cans which was a nice change from most parks we stay at in Arizona. There's a pretty nice fenced dog area (gravel) and a dirt path for walking dogs. We'd gladly do a short-term stay again, but the small sites, 30-amp hookups, and lack of AT&T service would make us think twice before a longer stay. We camped at North Ranch in a Motorhome.
