Sportsman's River Retreat, Chiloquin, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Site 3, a back-in, partially shaded. FHU with cable, but the cable didn't work. Utilities are at the back of the site. The sewer hookup was elevated making dumping harder than necessary. We had to park the car across the road in a very dusty area; they really need to gravel that. This is not a destination park. The park is 90% residential. There is no view. The shower (one) was clean but really small. Good ATT data. Three PBS channels OTA but nothing else watchable. Despite the state park website claims, there are no sites here for big rigs. I'm glad they were full, causing us to go to Sportsman's Retreat. We camped at Sportsman's River Retreat in a Motorhome.

Don't miss the Oregon State Logging Museum just up the road in Chiloquin. Klamath Falls has all the services needed. The county museum is worth a visit

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Site "59" an overflow site not on the map. $32, 30 amp and water. No reservation. Didn't realize that this park is full every night year round because they are essentially the only game in town for many miles in either direction. Make a reservation! Great park, immaculately kept by very genial hands-on owners. All sites (except 59) are fresh gravel with ample separation. Most are partially shaded, some are not. Cable picture was poor but probably just our connection, didn't try Wifi or use the showers or laundry. Good ATT data. Easy in/out, bargain propane. Decent dog walking. More to Burns than we realized, but this isn't a destination park; most sites turn over every day. We camped at Burns RV Park in a Motorhome.

Twin Falls County Fair, Filer, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Site 41, 30 amp and water. $21/ night. Grass, some shade. Quite long, but would be really, really narrow if the adjoining site was occupied. Lots of grass, some dust, lots of flies and strong odor (horses, cows, etc.). Many fields to walk dogs in but lots of dung for them to eat, too. Great showers and bathrooms in the "new" building. Ok for overnight. Definitely avoid if an event is scheduled. Good for a night or two.

Did I mention the flies? We camped at Twin Falls County Fair in a Motorhome.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Site 814, a FHU, pull thru. Fairly shady, close to neighbors. Had to disconnect dolly and angle it to fit everything in the site. Small but clean showers. Very good dog walking through back gate which gave access to the city park. We didn't use the pool or spa (many kids) or the laundromat. It is in the city not far from the airport so the traffic, plane and train noise is to be expected. If you want/need to visit the city it's closer than anywhere else. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Stock up on wine, beer and liquor before coming to Utah. The state has a monopoly through its stores and costs and choice suffer. Salt Lake City has everything you can possibly need, including good sushi, Costco, WinCo and Trader Joe's. The Whole Foods has a good prepared food section. The small Mexican restaurant adjacent to the KOA is quite good; try the lamb tacos. The city dog park a short walk behind the KOA is 5 acres and always has dogs to play with.

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

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

Site A18, a long shaded pull through. $63 w/ FHU. NOT LEVEL at all. Used every block I had, but still not level. Most sites looked a little better, but lots of leveling blocks in use. Odd sewer connection location, but made it work, sewer connection was up hill! Very tight roads. No Wifi, OTA, or any cell. Marginal Wifi at store/laundromat. Good laundromat. Showers much too expensive, didn't use. Store/deli surprisingly good and no outrageously expensive, even had drinkable wine available. Spectacular scenery everywhere. Also, lots of traffic, despite being mid-September. Tried to get into the Gros Ventre campground, but no space at all on a weekday in mid-Sept! Don't believe the website! Rangers said they are sold out every night for 30+ foot sites all year. Colter Bay Campground sites looked really tight; didn't see any big rigs in there at all. It was also packed. A couple of rangers commented about rapidly growing demand due to huge increase in RV sales over the last couple of years. Make reservations, especially if you are over 35'. Avoid A-loop sites if you can, the maneuvering is a challenge. We camped at Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Bill State Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Site NF34, very large pull thru on asphalt in lower section. FCFS, no utilities, some shade, table, fire ring. Limited/no shade in upper section. We really liked this park. Spectacular setting, lots of grass, good dog walking. Very good pay showers. Water readily available, good dump station. No Wifi. PBS on OTA, good ATT data. Firewood is on the "pay what you think its worth" system. We had reserved site NSH04 with electric in the North Shore Campground, but site would not fit us, a 43' motorhome. The ranger sent us 5 miles west to the North Fork campground because sites are all large. North Fork is a much better campground, in my opinion. We camped at Buffalo Bill State Park in a Motorhome.

15 miles west of Cody in Wapiti. NOT the way to visit Yellowstone. It is 100 miles each way to Old Faithful, at least 2.5 hours, and there are significant construction delays. Stay in Jackson or near the West entrance for better access to Yellowstone. Cody itself is worth the visit. Lots to do and see. Great vet if your pet has problems: Cody Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Stephanie White.

Boysen State Park, Shoshoni, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Tough Creek Campground, Site 34. Very large backin on gravel, lots of shade, no utilities in the park. Water is readily available, good dump station, no showers. $17 a night, cash or check only. Lots of bugs, most not biting but swarmed lights when the wind stopped, very annoying. Long way to any service so bring in everything you need. Right on the lake. Virtually deserted after Labor Day; some reservable sites, most fcfs. Great dog walking on the shore of the lake. Sweeping vistas. Rt 20 through Wind River Canyon is quite photogenic. Trains across the lake but no whistles. Got PBS OTA, good ATT data, no Wifi. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

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

Site A38, a pull thru with full hookups, on gravel, with some shade, some grass. 43' motorhome. Immaculate RV park, limited but ok dog walking. Ok showers. No dump station, not sure how folks on W&E sites dumped. Useless OTA, good ATT data, useless Wifi. Didn't use the laundry. Escorted to the site. There is a very busy train line across the valley that means constant horns. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Motorhome.

~65 miles to Billings: Costco, Walmart, etc. Didn't see much in the city that would cause me to return. 5 miles from Little Bighorn Battlefield Nat. Monument. Very interesting, took guided tour by Crow Indians, a very different perspective; worthwhile. Very limited local shopping, come stocked up. The cafe at the Trading Post is not very good. Lack of competition keeps it in business.

Creekside Mountain RV Park, Hill City, South Dakota

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

Site 11, a back-in on gravel surrounded by lush grass that is lovely tended by the owner of the campground. Our door faced her vegetable gardens. We had the run of several acres of grass and field, and the George Mickelson Trail is through a gate at the back of the property. The only issues are some road noise and no showers. Passport America rate only good for first night. The location is terrific for all of the Black Hills sights. Rita is very hands-on and helpful. We'd come back for sure.

BrGr61 in Keystone makes great burgers. The laundromat behind the Sonoco station is a little pricey but clean. Don't miss Crazy Horse and Iron Mountain Road. Rt 87 between Keystone and Pringle has great vistas and lots of buffalo on the road. Railroad Museum and CCC Museum in Hill City are worthwhile. Black Hills Tent and Awning in RC can fix any canvas problem. Mineral museum at South Dakota School of Mines was fascinating.

Wilderness Campground, Necedah, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Site 66, strong 50 amp, no water, no sewer. $22/night, 3 nights. Really tight roads with branches were a problem with our 43' motorhome, but the site was very spacious and private. On grass, was concerned it was too soft so I rolled back and forth a few times to pack it down and had no problem getting out. Glad I did that left pretty deep ruts. Good dog walking. Sites in the 1xx range along the lake are best. Water fill up on incoming: turn sharp right and follow one-way signs to 1xx sites. Spigot will be on the right next to dumpster. Potable water also at the dump station, but tough to turn around and re-enter. Ok AT&T data, no OTA, everyone in the area uses Verizon. We camped at Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Indianapolis KOA, Greenfield, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

Site 15 is a long pull through. Gravel, grass some shade. Lots of dust from the roads. The roads are tight, especially at check in area. Again, "jack and jill" utilities. The 50 amp was marginal; any load brought both legs down to ~110 volts, sometimes less. Right next to I70 but not too noisy. Nice little store on site with good ice cream cones, pizza, etc. Lots of activities if that's what you want. Big pool, mobbed with kids on weekend, but park emptied out Sunday afternoon. Had words with mgmt about putting a mat on the grass, which was muddy. I told them that a little gravel would solve the problem but they weren't interested in suggestions. The mat stayed out.

Chicago McCormick Place Marshaling Yard, Chicago, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

What everyone has said: It's a parking lot between a rail line and two freeways with semis coming and going at all hours. There is nothing to recommend this place except its location. Come with full water tanks, there is none there. Note: the entrance is the one where the yard office building is, the first left after turning onto Moe St. Park as near to the (only) islands of trees at the McCormick end of the yard as you can. Avoid parking between trucks, one might back into you at night. We had no security concerns. There is a guard circulating somewhere in the lot all night. There is a bike path, a nature trail and a seawall that go for miles. Good AT&T, no Wifi, and surprisingly only 4 channels OTA. We camped at Chicago McCormick Place Marshaling Yard in a Motorhome.

This Architectural River Tour https://www.architecture.org/tours/detail/chicago-architecture-foundation-center-river-cruise-aboard-chicagos-first-lady-cruises/ is well-worth the cost. The Chicago History Museum was eminently miss-able. Be sure to have cocktails at the top of the Hancock tower. I wish we had gone to the Art Institute of Chicago; we were just too tired.

It is a longish walk to the Metra station in McCormick Place. Don't drive downtown. Aside from the hassle, parking cost $35 for two hours. Lyft worked flawlessly and cost about $11 plus tip from the Millennium Park area to the yard. There is a great park right across Lakeshore Drive, but you have to drive to it. Cross Lakeshore at 31st St., turn left and park at the meters.

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Ok sites. Wide gravel streets. Short-ish pull through, had to drop the car before entering the site. Sites are "jack and jill" layout, sharing utility post. No shade at all. Sites are grass. Some sites are still muddy from recent rain. Very quiet when nothing is going on at the fairgrounds, but some freeway noise from i94. Expansive dog walking. The showers were clean, but so small and dated to be unusable. Good place; we'd gladly stay again. We camped at Wayne County Fairgrounds & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Trader Joe's and lots of other shopping in Ann Arbor, about 20 minutes away. Henry Ford Museum and factory tour was very interesting. Do the tour in the AM as it gets really crowded later. Avoid eating at Larry's Diner inside the museum: lousy food and poor service. There are two other restuarants that looked much better.

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Really tight gate, but easy maneuvering once in. Wide lots, no shade, right next to rail tracks with long freight trains several times a day; no whistles, though. Clean, but really small, antique showers in bad need of replacement. Didn't use the laundry. Ridiculous sewer placements; ours was under and behind the coach, and up hill! I should have used the dump station, it would have been much easier. Our site faced the playground and there were way too many kids running around much too late at night. There is a very large pool that many were enjoying. Lots of seasonal sites, most of which were clean; a few looked kind of dumpy, but no issues. We'd stay here again.

WiFi worked most of the time if patient. The Welland Canal and St. Catherine's Museum is worth seeing and close to the park. The Trip Behind The Falls at Niagara was almost 2 hours of standing in line to watch water fall past you. For $$$$. Not again. Lunch at Creekside Winery was outstanding: the BEST BBQ brisket I have ever eaten. We enjoyed Konzelmann Winery in Niagara on the Lake, too. Their Cab was good, and the Curry Butter Chicken spice mix made a great dinner.
