Aspen Ridge is an older park that was purchased by new owners. It is a work in progress, and the dedication into making Aspen Ridge a 1st class park is very evident. There are many RV parks to choose from in the South Fork area and most cater to long term summer visitors. Aspen Ridge is no different. The reason we would come back here is because of the wonderful people that run it.

This is a great CG! You can see the love and attention the owners have expended to make it so nice. Not many places to stop on I-10 in west Texas so we were pleased to find this one. Just an overnight stay but could not have been more pleased. No other place we would stay in Ft Stockton.

Not many choices when you are traveling I-10. We wanted to get to the east side of El Paso so choose this CG. As previous reviewers have stated the sites for big rigs are more than adequate but the surroundings leave something to be desired. We would probably stop here again for the convenience but for what we got thought it was way overpriced.

We had planned on staying here for just a week but due to ongoing mechanical issues ended up being here for 2 weeks. The staff could not have been nicer. As previous reviews have said if you are looking for scenic views this is not your place. If you want a great place to base out of when you are in the Cody area you won't find any better. We would not stay anywhere else if we are ever in the area again.

We love this campground. It's small enough not to have a lot of traffic but big enough for some nice walks. When I tried to make a reservation through the Reserve America site, it only listed the sites as being 30 ft. I swapped emails with a very nice person on staff and was assured our big rig would fit. If you go to this web site it gives a map and specifics for each site. http://stateparks.utah.gov/parks/steinaker/maps/campground Lots to see and do here in dinosaur country. We would stay here again.

We were only here for an overnight stop but had no complaints. The staff is great. I understand the campground has come under new management, and it's a work in progress, and you can see the effort being made. We stayed at the other campground just down the road several years ago, and although we liked it, would probably choose RV World just because of the staff.

This is our second stay at Colter Bay. The staff could not have been nicer. I had requested a specific site and got it. This is a great base to see the Tetons and you don't even have to drive anywhere to have lots to do right there in Colter Village. We would stay here again.

On a previous trip to Yellowstone we stayed at the North Entrance. What a mistake! Long drives to almost everything. This time we stayed at Fishing Bridge and could have been happier. The sites are close together, but we were not there to spend time in the campground. Being in the middle of the park allowed us to see it all from the best possible location. We would stay here again.

We have stayed at this campground several times and always enjoyed it. This last time there seemed to be more Canadian geese than before. We attempted to make sure our dogs did not come in contact with either the geese or their droppings. A few days after we left both dogs got sick. Took almost a month on a RX to get them well. Can not say for sure it was from the geese, but we probably won't camp here again and take that chance.

As previous reviews have stated the sites in this CG are close but this is not a place you would want sit outside to admire the scenery. On one side is I-90 and the other a railroad track. The noise at night between the road traffic and the trains going through would keep us from making this a lengthy stay. We stopped here for only a couple of nights. The owners are great and take pride in making sure the grounds are clean. Beautiful flowers all over. We would stay here again.

Difficult to rate this CG. The staff could not have been more helpful. The view from our site was beautiful. Our greatest complaint was the WiFi. As full time RV'ers having internet is almost a necessity. Part of the reason we booked here was because they say they have WiFi. They do, but it is probably the worst we've ever experienced. Even going to the office did not speed it up. Would probably stay here again but make sure we had as much internet business as possible completed before arriving.

There are 2 campgrounds below the dam. We stayed on the east side, and it does have 50 amps and sewer. There is a bridge that crosses the river, and it DOES NOT support big rigs. If you are staying on the east side call the phone number given and get directions since there is no signage. We were in site 21 and had no problem getting our roof top satellite to work, although some sites were pretty shaded. I called recreation.gov to make our reservations and was able to use our Senior Pass and get a discount. Don't think you can do this if you go on-line. We were just passing through and only stayed one night, but we would stay here again.

Not sure there is anything I can add the previous reviewers haven't already said. This is a wonderful campground and the hard work the owners have expended is very evident. Mother nature dealt them a severe blow after their roads were paved but they are working hard to fix them. There is so much to see and do in the area and we hope to go back and would not think of staying anywhere else.

This is a difficult campground to rate. In the Woodall's directory it says it has 200 sites. Perhaps so but most of those are in grass fields and probably only used when there is an event at the fair grounds. I also did not see any restrooms open while we were there. We stayed in the South Lot which has full hookups and 50 amps. There are maybe 25 sites here. It too is grassy w/ pedestals in the back for electric and water. The sewer is in the back a well. We used our macerator in order to reach. We had no complaints. The ladies in the office are great. When you call for a reservation make sure you ask them for directions. The turn into the campground is easy to miss. We loved our stay in Lewisburg. There is so much to see and do and the campground is an ideal location from which to explore this beautiful part of West Virginia.

This park is also listed in Fairfax. Reston is the actual address but it is in Fairfax County. We stayed here to be near family and it was very convenient. The rate is high considering you only have electric. We have no complaints about our stay. Park staff was friendly and campsite was clean and neat. Will stay here again when we come back to visit family.

We really enjoyed this park. We are Thousand Trails members and this is one of the nicest campgrounds we've been to in the system. Would stay here again if we're ever in the area.

If there were a higher rating than an 10 I would have given it. As the previous review stated this is truly a gem. The Montague Harbor is within view and a branch of the Confederate Trail is 50 yards away. It is centrally located so you can drive less than 100 miles and see the entire eastern shoreline of Prince Edward Island. We've been traveling Atlantic Canada all summer and this is the nicest place we've stayed. If only it weren't so far from Texas.

Like other reviewers we stayed here while we explored the Cabot Trail. What makes this such a great place to stay is the family that owns the campground. From having a restaurant with great food to keeping the grounds well maintained they try to make sure all of their guests have a good stay. Wi-Fi is exceptional- one of the best we've used.

What makes this such a wonderful place to stay is the folks that run the campground. When I e-mailed about making a reservation I got not only a reply verifying the dates but also an offer to give us recommendations for "must dos" while in Newfoundland. We stayed here after coming in on the ferry and again before we left. Our only complaint was the black flies. Probably the worst we encountered, but this was not something management can control. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for over a week while exploring Gros Morne and could not have found a nicer campground. Management was great, and all the services worked well. Only complaint was the dust from the roads. We would stay here again.

We stopped here for one night on our way west on TCH. Had called and made a reservation and told there were no sites left on the lake. When we got there the lady in the office had seen where there was a cancellation and had moved us to a lake front site. It was tight to get into, but the view was great. Lots of seasonals and weekend families but the park was well run and clean. We would stay here again.

Rated this park a 7 because of the electric. Although it was supposed to be 30 amps it was not. We have an EMS system on our rig and it was constantly cutting the power due to low voltage. We knew the water was not treated before we came so had a full freshwater tank and just used it. In spite of these problems we loved it here. Management was great and showed a wonderful example of Newfoundland hospitality. Without a doubt would stay here again.

We stayed here since it was centrally located to see the Kittiwake coast. Management is great. Wi-Fi was very sporadic and not dependable. Several seasonals in the park but clean and well kept. We would stay here again.

We stopped here for the night on our way east toward St John's. The rate is w/ Camp Club USA. We only saw one person taking care of the park and she was overwhelmed. No one at the front when we came in and there were very poor instructions as to where to park. Road noise was very bad. Would only stay here again if necessary for an overnight stop.

This is a beautiful National Park. We were in one of the 10 full service sites. During the busy summer season these fill up fast so reservations are a must. So much to see and do in the area. Alma is just down the road. Could spend the day there talking to the locals and enjoying the good food and watching the tides change. If we are fortunate enough to come back to New Brunswick we would certainly stop here again.

Yes- it is essentially a gravel parking lot but where else can you find a campground almost in the middle of a city surrounded by a beautiful park? Rockwood Park has numerous hiking trails, an excellent restaurant in the park, and you are close enough to downtown to enjoy all there is in Saint John. The campground hosts were great and we would stay here again if we are ever fortunate enough to come back to New Brunswick. I gave it an 8 only because the utilities are in difficult places.

We stopped here on our way into Canada. The owners are great- friendly and helpful. This appears to be mostly a park for permanent rigs. They have a few sites for folks like us passing through. It's location allowed us to see some of that part of Maine and be close enough to Calais to get over the border without driving very far. We would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay here at Oceanfront Camping. The view is fantastic and not too many places you can watch the tides ebb and flow from you rig. You can walk into town to shop, eat and enjoy the history of St Andrews. We would come back again.

We stopped here just for the night on the way to Maine. Would not stay here any length of time. It's next to the interstate with lots of truck noise. Appears to be many long term residents. Roads are dirt and we were there when it had rained. Very muddy. Would only stay here again if necessary. Not many choices between Scranton and into New York for big rigs.

We had planned to just overnight but ended up being there 6 nights due to a breakdown with our truck. If I could have given more than a 10 I would have. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating. Even went so far as to take my husband into Harrisonburg to pick up our truck. Without a doubt would stay here again.

This is a great place to stop when you're traveling I-70 across western Kansas. We stayed here last year and found it as nice and convenient as before. Full service truck stop across the road w/ easy access and restaurant next door. We would definitely stay here again.

We needed a campground to overnight before heading east across Nevada. When I made our reservations on line, there was a problem. I emailed to report I had not gotten a confirmation and received a very sincere apology. When we arrived, everyone in the office apologized again for the mixup. They could not have been nicer or more helpful. We were just here one night and probably would not choose it for any longer. It is next to US 50 and the highway noise could be a problem. For a one night stopover we would stay here again.

As the previous review stated, this park is great for an overnight stopover. There is very little to choose from going south on I-5. The lady in the office was very friendly and helpful. We had a pull through and although there appeared to be several long term residents, they were not near our area. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground and the owners have put a lot of time and money into it. We would have given it a 10 except for the road noise. It was constant and nothing between the highway and our site to block it. The owners should consider putting up either a fence or high shrubs. We would stay here again but ask for a back in site on the other side of the bathhouse and laundry.

No doubt this is a beautiful place with the Hood Canal right out your door. Our only complaint is how close our site was to the next one. When they put their awning out it was touching our slide. Each site is different so not all were like ours. We would love to stay here again but would make sure we had a different site.

We stayed here to be able see the northern side of the Olympic Peninsula. As previously stated the sites are pretty close together but that was not a problem. The hosts are great and the park could not be any cleaner. Even though the park is right off the main street in Sequim the owners used landscaping to block so you don't feel "downtown" at all. We would stay here again if we ever come back to the area.

I concur w/ the previous reviews. This is a typical Thousand Trials park. We were very lucky in that we got a premium site w/ sewer and a place for our satellite. There are not many in the park and we understand during the busy season they have a sign up list for these sites. If you intend to drive up and find a good site, it probably won't happen between now and after Labor Day. We would only stay here again because it doesn't cost us anything.

If all Thousand Trails were like this one, we would have no reason to complain. We felt like we were staying in a National Forest. Like most of the Thousand Trail preserves this one has been around for some time but it appears to have been maintained better than others we've been in. As a previous reviewer noted the name is misleading. The town of Leavenworth is at least 20 miles away but there is much to see and do even if you don't get to town. We would love to come back here.

We stayed here using our Thousand Trails membership. This was our first experience in a former Leisure Time Resort and were sadly disappointed. It appears that the powers that be at ESL have let an absolutely fantastic park become as run down as many of the other TT preserves. This place is in an incredible location with spectacular views but the roads are typical TT and sites are close together and uneven. Wi-Fi is there by very poor. We understand previous management let things get bad and we must say in the time we were there the new manager seems to be attempting to make things better. Only reason we would stay here again would because it's free with our TT membership.

We stayed here because it was close to the National Park. I guess the best way to describe this park is to say it is rustic. It appears not to have been maintained over the years. There are two camping areas. In the forested area, the sites were very muddy and dark. The sunny sites had grass and when the sun was out they got some light. Besides the camping area there are lots of "cabins" which have been here for a while. The folks that run the campground could not have been nicer but we would not stay here again.

This is a National Forest CG so there are no hookups. Vault toilets and water are in several locations through out the campground. This is a wonderful location to stay if you want to see this part of Utah. Canyonlands Needles District is less than an hour away. Natural Bridges National Monument is close enough for a day trip and Moab a little over an hour to the north. Very quiet with beautiful views of the the Abajo Mountains and lots of places to hike and go four wheeling. We would stay here again.

We stayed in Monticello South but getting to it after checking in at the Visitors Center in Elephant Butte was a real challenge. The map they gave us was not to scale, there was no inset w/ the Monticello South campground and the road we had to take was not labeled correctly. When we turned down the road that had a sign for the campground the actual turn into the camping area was very poorly marked. Once we found our site and got settled we loved where we were. It appears they are in the process of developing this area but it would be a great help if they could hand out current maps and give better directions. Now that we know where we're going we would stay here again.

This is a very nice campground and the people could not have been nicer. They do not sell propane but when we asked they offered to take our tank and have it filled when they were taking theirs. As previous reviews have stated it is some distance fron Colorado Springs but it's worth it for the isolation. Several campgrounds we noticed near the sights were very crowded and near busy roads. We would stay here again.

We found this campground to be less than what we expected. Everything in the previous reviews is right, and although it has the feel of a national forest it's also very busy. There is a restaurant in the campground with lots of coming and going. The only access to the Wi-Fi is in the lounge by the office. If you're camped at the top of the hill it's a long walk down. There are only 2 bath houses and several times we had to wait since most campers did not follow the 10-minute shower sign. There are sites for big rigs but some are narrow and difficult to get in. The staff is great: very friendly and helpful but we never felt "at home" and would not choose to stay here again.

We loved this campground. It is close to shopping areas, walking paths, and the golf course. Our only complaint: the Wi-Fi was very undependable but the owners are aware and trying to get it fixed. You can still go in the recreation center and hook up directly. All the previous reviews are right. One of the best parks we've been to. We hope to come back in the future.

What a beautiful campground. The Salmon River was just out our back window and what a view! The wonderful hosts and have made River's Fork Park a place you want to go back to and stay for a while.

This campground has many positives but some negatives that would cause us to question staying here again. The road noise is constant but you get so you can ignore it. My main complaint was that we had several "extended" families camped aound us. All had dogs that they neither kept on leashs or picked up after them. This seemed to be the rule rather than the exception. All the camp hosts or Rangers had to do was ride through the park and see the rules were not being followed. As far as I know none of the offenders were reprimanded or cited.

Dead Horse Point matches the Grand Canyon. We stayed there for a week. The only water in the park is "trucked" in daily from Moab so they ask that you fill your fresh water tank before arriving. They do have a place at the bathroom (no showers) where you can fill a jug. We loved it there- Canyon Lands is close by and Arches is about 30 miles toward Moab. Wonderful hiking both at Dead Horse Point and at the National Parks. Our only complaint was the gnats- or what's called no- seeums. Could not find anything to repel them. Supposedly just a problem late spring and early summer. We would love to go back.

We love the National Park Campgrounds and this one did not disappoint us. From your campsite you can walk to the rim and access several trails as well as get to the lodge and the visitors center. We made reservations because we have a big rig and were glad we did. Without a doubt we would stay here again.

As stated in earlier reviews the main reason for staying here is the proximity to the Park. The sites are narrow and there is a lot of activity. The only dealing we had with the office was when we checked in and they could not have been nicer. The shuttle to the Park runs right by the campground and we found we did not need to use our own vehicle at all. We could ride the shuttle to Zion and could walk into Springdale. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground with the mountain views right outside your rig. The main drawback we found was having to fight the Tucson traffic to go anywhere. Most of the sights we wanted to see were either south or east of Catalina and you have to go through Tucson to get there. This was our first trip to the area and even though we liked the campground we would look for one on the south side of town on our next visit.

I agree with all the previous reviews. The hosts have made a first class campground here at Boot Hill. It is a perfect place to stay while taking in the area sights or if you just want a nice clean place for the night. We stayed here in a fifth wheel and would not stay anywhere else in Alamogordo. Our rate was $125 for the week plus electricity.

We agree with everything the previous reviewer wrote. BJ's really grew on us as did the whole area. We were there almost 2 weeks and wish it were longer. Unfortunately it was early in the season and we were the only one's on site most of our visit so did not get to enjoy the gatherings around the fire. The couple that take care of the park and really make this a wonderful place to want to come back to. We most certainly will be back.

This Park grew on us. When we arrived the site we had reserved was taken by what looked like a long term camper. This is an older park, and for some reason they have big square posts at odd places around each site. It severely limits where you can park a big rig. Some of the hookups are not convenient. After several contacts with the office we were given a site that we were able to angle into and access the water and sewer. The location is beautiful- right on the Hudson and there is a stop within walking distance where you can catch a train right into the city. We would stay there again, but wish they would reconfigure the sites to be more user friendly.

We loved this park. Numerous hiking trails are wide and clean. Even though it is not right on the lake, it is only a short walk down an asphalt trail to a very nice swimming beach. Sites are some of the largest we've seen, and very well kept. We would definitely go back.

I agree with the last review. If you have a large rig like ours you need to call make sure you are assigned to one of the longer sites. Nice park with a trail to the lake. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. New restrooms that are clean and well maintained. We would camp there again.

A beautiful state park. We were there 11 days and had a great site right on the water. We had non-camping family members that rented one of the Villas and we were close enough to walk back and forth. Our only problem was we arrived with full black and grey water tanks and the dump was not very convenient. You have to go all the way around the camping area to get to the dump and then go some distance to turn around and return to the camping area. We would definitely camp there again.

We stayed in the beach campground, and had a wonderful site with the ocean out our back window. Restrooms are clean. The water has an unpleasant taste so we would advise you take drinking water. Only other problem we found was the location of the dump station. We have a 36 foot 5th wheel and there is a pretty sharp turn to get back on the highway after you dump.

Very nice place to stop for the night, or for several days. Wayne and Sue are wonderful hosts. Louisville is 15 miles away with lots of history. It was the first permanent capitol of Georgia and has an original Market House in the middle of town. We would definitely stop at Boss's again.

The Park has recently upgraded it's electric and now has 50 amps. There are a few sites with sewer. We stopped here to see the caverns, and were not disappointed. Very interesting. Our biggest problem was the mosquitos. They were terrible. Not just after sunset but during the day too.You have to keep yourself sprayed well with repellent. There is lots of poison ivy on all the wonderful trails and around the campsites as well. It is a beautiful park. Sites and facilities are clean and staff is friendly and helpful but we would probably not go back since we've seen the caverns.

We overnighted here on our way to New Orleans. The office staff were young, inexperienced, and not very knowledgeable. We stayed in the North Campground and it is 4 miles from the entrance. Ground around the campsites was trashy. As a previous reviewer stated you have to choose your site with care. Many are very sloped and short. Would probably not stay here again if we have another choice.
