Price reflects weekly rate. Old reviews from two years ago drag down the overall rating here; current reviews are much better. Owners bought the place six years ago from foreclosure, then survived Royal Gorge fire shutdown for two years, are rebuilding. Most personable owners I've ever met, hosting a front porch social gathering every evening until as late as guests wish to stay. Others have described the facilities, but I have to say I've never felt as welcome anywhere else. And of course there's so much to do in the Canon City area. I'll be back for an extended stay.

Date of Stay:

I can repeat everything the previous review said. Place needs mowing, many permanent residents, kind of run down, but some shade and OK for a night. Water was under a boil order, which was a pain, but the park was giving away individual bottles of water. You might check on this before coming because I think it may have been this way for a while.

Date of Stay:

"Campground" is stretching it. This is a field cleared out of the woods with electric/water/sewer connections. There's wi-fi, but it's VERY slow and spotty. The "site" was grass & dirt, with a little gravel thrown in, but I had to use boards under the levelers so they wouldn't sink into the ground. And the whole place is unlevel; my front wheels are off the ground. "Streets" are graveled paths worn into the ground. From the time you turn off of the highway the gravel road is bumpy, preparing you for the campground "streets". I stayed here because it's the least expensive, believe it or not, of all the campgrounds in the Natchitoches area. It will do as a base because I don't use campground amenities except laundry.

It's a good think I could see the parked RVs from the highway or I would not have found the place. No sign, and not even a sign on the building to identify the office. The very nice manager said the place is three years old. Nonetheless, it's a very nice park and when the trees grow it will be lovely. All concrete (and level) with grass between spaces; the pads are quite long and the hookups new. There are no picnic tables or patios, and this is not the type of park for fire pits. Immaculate restroom & showers; several long-term residents, but neatly kept. Quiet. About 20 back-ins and 10 pull-throughs. Most amazing, manager says the laundry is free!

I'll echo the comments of the previous reviewer, and add that there's a nice golf course within steps of the RV park office. Several long-term residents, but well-kept, neat and quiet. No picnic table at most sites.

This is a National Park Service park, with the campsites situated on the East side of Lake of the Woods. There are no hookups, but the gorgeous fir and pine trees and the beautiful lake more than make up for that. The sites are very large, all back-ins with plenty of room for my motorhome and toad. Very quiet, and the camp hosts were visible often. There is a resort (Lake of the Woods) nearby with restaurant and store, though a bit pricey. I was here for three days and would have given it a 12 if the park had hookups.

Date of Stay:

I'll just echo the comments of the previous reviewer, except to say that the activities available include Lava Beds National Monument, Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, WWII Japanese "Relocation" Center, and a CCC camp also used for prisoners of WWII. The tiny town, with very few amenities, is rich in fascinating opportunities. The visitor center at the fairgrounds houses a very full museum, and tours of the relocation center and CCC camp are available on Saturdays. One can easily spend four or five days here. As stated earlier, the hookups are excellent.

An excellent park; but first of all, do NOT take Eagle Lake Road from Susanville - it's narrow, winding, and steep. Take 139 from Susanville and the North entrance to Eagle Lake Road, drive to Spaulding street (which becomes Lake View Road) all the way to the end, turn right and go to the park. The park has 50+ RV sites, a few cabins, full hookups, laundry, restrooms with showers, recycling bins, dump station, gasoline ($4.80/gallon today!), propane, and a small store in the office. A very nice setting of large pine trees, with a view of Eagle Lake - which has been receeding, but not as bad as some other area lakes. Not crowded at all and very quiet with friendly owners and staff. I'd come back here in a heartbeat.

This is a motel several miles West of Salt Lake City at exit 99 on I-80. There are 10 rv "sites", dirt/gravel, but with full hookups. Wi-fi is free, but very weak. There are truck stops and fast food places in both directions, plus a Denny's (where the food wasn't great). The most remarkable thing about this place is that the washer and dryer only cost $1.00 each! If you need inexpensive and close to the airport, this is the place.

Welcome Station RV Park

Wells, Nevada

Date of Stay:

About 8 miles West of Wells at I-80 exit 343, this park is basically a grass area with full hookups, $15 for 30 amp and $20 for 50 amp. The owner is laid back and pleasant and the park is surrounded by very large, old trees and has a mountain view to the North. There is lovely spring-fed stream running through the West side of the property into a small pond, and there are places to sit and contemplate the beauty. Right next to I-80, but the noise didn't bother me inside. There is a laundry with brand new washers/dryers; I did not look at the restrooms. There are a number of long-term trailers there but the owners were quiet and pleasant. A very pleasant place to stay for a night or two.

New Frontier RV Park

Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay:

This sites are gravel back-ins, with a young tree (no shade) at each site. There are several park model trailers available, and a large number of duplex/triplex "cabins" as well. The park is pretty new and the hookups are excellent and include cable TV and wi-fi, although I found the wi-fi to be weak. It's very clean and well-kept and would be fine for multiple nights.

Date of Stay:

Just a one night stay but would have stayed longer if there was anything to do in Fernley. Built in front of a mobile home park, but separated by a wall, this park has fairly level concrete pads, metal picnic tables, full hookups (including about 36 cable channels), terrific free wi-fi, propane, laundry, showers & bathrooms. The men's showers have some soap film on the walls, but overall everything looks clean. There's a tree at each site but they're only about 15 feet high so it will be a while before there's any shade.

Date of Stay:

There are several RV campgrounds in Rawlins and as nearly as I can tell they're all gravel with tightly spaced sites. No ambiance, looks like mostly blue-collar resident trailers although it was quiet on a Sunday. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Wouldn't want to stay more than one night, and there's no particular draw for the area except for "the world's most modern refinery" (Sinclair). Full hookups are adequate, Wi-Fi is TengoInternet but free. Small laundromat and mini-store on site. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Stillwater Campground

Granby, Colorado

Date of Stay:

Price is with senior passport. Another beautiful federal facility. Gravel back-in sites with gravel pads for picnic tables and fire pits, situated on a peninsula on Lake Granby a few miles north of Granby, CO. Beautiful panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. No check-in issues - was told "just go to your site and enjoy the sunset". Bathrooms were clean, showers free; but you can't adjust the water temperature and some were very hot, others not so much. Still fine. A great place to camp.

Date of Stay:

Gorgeous views everywhere, adequate space for each site, well-kept, no hookups but water and dump site available, rangers are outstanding. Did I say gorgeous surroundings? Well run, well organized. A pleasure to stay there.
