Coopers Rock State Forest, Bruceton Mills, West Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park once you get to it. The road in from I-68 is very narrow with NO shoulders and drop offs can cause damage, so slow down and don't drift off the road. Tried to call the CG to check on availability but call always went to voice mail and no one called back. Luckily there was room when I arrived. Hosts were friendly and helpful. We camped at Coopers Rock State Forest in a Travel Trailer.

St. Albans Roadside Park, Saint Albans, West Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

It's free! There are ONLY 3 sites in the park. The first night I parked in the park parking lot and found a plug at the power distribution panel to get electric. The water was turned off because the faucet broke recently and hasn't been repaired yet. They turned the water off to the entire park because of this broken faucet. Recent rains caused a large puddle behind the last site that made plugging into the electric post very tricky. Noise from the road isn't too bad after midnight but starts back up early in the morning. The campground is overly lit by street lights. Constant stream of locals playing tourist thru the CG. We camped at St. Albans Roadside Park in a Travel Trailer.

Singing Hills RV Park & Campground, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Entrance to park has little warning coming up the hill from the interstate. Exiting can be a bit hairy as you are going up a gravel hill onto a busy road with a 55 mph speed limit. The dump is at the back of the campground and I had to go out to the entrance and turn around to orient my rig in order to dump. Rules make a point about not smoking beyond your site but smoke from campfires blows freely. We camped at Singing Hills RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Ozarks Mountain Springs RV Park, Mountain View, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

US 60 passing in front of the campground is a 4 lane divided highway with a speed limit of 65 mph. If you are traveling east you have to make a u-turn to get to the entrance of the CG and you need to make another u-turn to continue east when you leave. Did I mention the hills blocking your view of on-coming traffic! Missouri places their lane rumble strips right on the white line so you hear traffic hitting them all the time. My site was fine except for the 30 amp receptacle that was upside down. We camped at Ozarks Mountain Springs RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Las Vegas, New Mexico KOA, Las Vegas, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Run of the mill KOA close to the interstate (some noise). Wi-fi was okay for email but slow for anything more. A thunderstorm the one night caused a lot of run off and created a mess. My neighbor's site was covered in mud. We camped at Las Vegas, New Mexico KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park), Olathe, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is based on a one month stay. Nice campground in the farm community of Olathe. Owners are attentive and responsive to your needs. A few new sites are planned for the south end but work is in progress and being done by the owner. Currently it is a barren site with piles of dirt. Mosquitos and bugs at night were an issue. About half of the sites are occupied by seasonal campers. Equal distance to Delta and Montrose for shopping. Small grocery store in town for necessities. Wi-fi was up and down. They are planning an upgrade to fiber but I put it in the category of the additional sites. Washers and dryers work okay and cost $2.00. We camped at Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds), Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

You can't beat the price. Very large campground adjoining the rodeo complex. Sites are all gravel with nothing in them. All utilities worked fine. Short drive to restaurants, gas station and interstate. We camped at Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds) in a Travel Trailer.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $61.00
Overall Rating:

Lousy campground in a beautiful location. You have to pay premium price due to the fact they are basing their rate on Jackson campgrounds. The handout you receive with the CG map is a poor copy of a copy - hard to read. Sites are a mess and don't appear to have been touched for routine cleaning and this is the beginning of the season! Loop A is directly behind the grocery store, showers and laundry. This fact may sound appealing to some but it is a curse. The area is very busy and noisy during the day. At night you can clearly hear the fan on the chiller unit on top of the store cycling off and on every couple of minutes and it is very noisy! They advertise Wifi in the campground but you have to go to the store to access it. Grand Teton Lodge Company is the concessionaire for all services at Colter Bay.

Rocky Mountain Hi RV Park & Campground, Kalispell, Montana

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground on the edge of town. Very quiet at night. If you want to use your satellite dish you need to stay in sites 71 to 85 due to trees in sites 1 to 50. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped at Rocky Mountain Hi RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Riverside State Park, Nine Mile Falls, Washington

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Review for Riverside State Park - 9 Mile Recreation Area. Cost includes all fees. Unusual little park off the beaten path. Small sign right at the entrance road, so watch for it! This park is popular with fishermen and locals, so a lot of day usage. They have a few FHU sites but most are W&E. The on way road in is gravel and passes thru the pine trees. Great views of the river! Very few campers mid week. We camped at Riverside State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Grand Coulee RV Park, Grand Coulee, Washington

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

I was able to stay here after my plans went awry and luckily they had a cancellation. Most overnight spaces are at the top of the hill. Very quiet at night. Wifi worked great most of the time. I checked out the the other FHU campgrounds in the area and this is best of them. My only negative is the laundry room with only one washer and one working dryer that is in a dark and dirty room. We camped at Grand Coulee RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Peach Beach Campark (Sunset Orchards), Goldendale, Washington

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

One could easily rate this park higher because of the views. Very easy access to I84. The road into the park needs repair. The trains run at all hours on both sides of the Columbia. There is an at grade crossing nearby in "downtown" Maryhill and some trains blow their horn. Road noise from the interstate is minimal at night. I could not receive any OTA channels. Satellite reception is very dependent on your site. Water pressure is low. We camped at Peach Beach Campark (Sunset Orchards) in a Travel Trailer.

Silver Spur RV Park, Silverton, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Well kept and growing RV park. They are adding a third section that is scheduled to be open in June 2018. One section is mostly long-term and the one closest to the road is mixed with most long terms in the back and along the side. WiFi worked very well. Laundry room only had 3 washers, but had five dryers - go figure. We camped at Silver Spur RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
