We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Sundance! It is almost in the city center and we just were not hopeful that it would be more than a gravel parking lot. It is gravel, but with many large trees, grassy areas and a very well managed park. We had a large pull through with a grass space and picnic table. The laundry and restrooms/showers were spotless and well functioning. Management was extremely pleasant and helpful. The park is located right across the street from a lovely city park and the visitor’s center, with a super nice little café right next door. Just up the street is a large, newer Wal-Mart and there are restaurants aplenty in town. We were here for three nights and enjoyed the National parks nearby and the local cuisine.
If you are looking for luxury accommodations while traveling in your motor coach, or a permanent vacation spot, this is it! Gate guarded, club house, pools and amazing spaces for your coach. Not a camping atmosphere, but a resort with individual outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, television and patio furniture rather than that picnic table on a scraggly piece of grass. Palms swaying and personnel readily available, makes this a premium facility. We paid about $90 a night for a premium space.
Salt Lake, Pony Express RV Resort. Pulled into the Pony Express RV Resort about 3 in the afternoon. It was easy to find and very easy to check into. We were shown to our spot by a gentleman in a golf cart. Super neat and nice! There is a security gate into the parking spaces, which are all concrete withmany pull-through spaces with an extra pad for tow vehicles. Showers and restrooms are plentiful, super clean. There are about 5 cabins in a space off to the side. Not sure if the cabins are for rent or what, but the park is definitely worth the stay. Nice fenced playground for the kiddies, walking area for people and pets, nice grassy area for dog walking and a trail beside the Jordan River. Management is extremely helpful and very gracious. Really a nice park for big rigs. Price we paid was for a premium extra large pull-through, with a Good Sam discount about $42 a night.
A strip of gravel with spaces divided by a small tree and a picnic table greet you at Cadillac Ranch! But, the spaces are plenty long, though not private in the least, and you will be facing a peaceful, tree lined pond. The management is super nice and helpful and the park is pretty quiet. Even with the sparseness, it rises head and shoulders above the other parks we saw in Bluff and Blanding! There is NO cable TV as advertised, but I understand you can receive 6 Salt Lake stations via antenna. I don’t know about satellite. The WiFi is sometimes slow, but works well most of the time. No pool but there are bathrooms and showers available. The park is right across the highway from old Fort Bluff: a must see. The fort is being reconstructed on it’s original spot and there are several buildings that are original. The Visitor’s center is also in that location. Tiny town, nice people and a quiet place to stay. $55 for two nights. Works for big rigs.
Pulled into Moab on a Saturday afternoon in May to the Portal RV Resort. What a nice park! Perfect for big rigs, many of the sites are gravel, many are pull-throughs, but our favorite were the premium sites further from the road. These sites are 40X80, concrete pads, and most are pull throughs. The park is immaculate and there is room for just about any size rig, tows, any trailers and all your toys! Many people go off-roading in this area and Portal is located within a few miles of Canyonlands and Arches National Parks. The pool and spa are sparkling new and the bathrooms and showers are better than home! There is a very large fenced area for walking the pets. We stayed 3 nights, with the impressive wall of rocks in the background and the beautiful sun shining. Recommend this park to anyone traveling or as a destination, especially those with big rigs. We stayed in a premium spot, so it might have been a bit pricer than the gravel spots in the front, we paid $62 a night. The management was friendly and helpful, as were all the folks we met in town. Just a lovely place to visit!
Located conveniently within walking distance of a newer Wal-Mart, a medical clinic, several types of fueling stations. This park is very neat, very, very clean! People are friendly and helpful. We had a leak in our refrigerator water line and were given the name of a guy who comes out to do repairs. The repair guy came out first thing in the morning and did the repair for minimal money and was very pleasant. There is a very nice, new playground area for the kiddies, all fenced and clean and several new spaces being added. Upon arrival and sign in, one of the managers in a cart, led us to our spot and we were pleasantly surprised! All concrete pads and we were able to have a very large pull-through spot and didn’t have to unhook the tow car. We were only here for the night, so that was perfect. The facilities were exceptionally clean. Not a place we would want to spend an entire vacation due to the lack of ambiance, but perfect for an overnighter. The park is very near Mountain Home AFB, but it was quiet all night. We heard a few jets going over when we first got there, in the evening, but they were not close and only a distant noise. Great for big rigs.
This Pendleton KOA is just pads and not much else, but our space, #49, is long enough to accommodate the coach and the Jeep. We were very happy we didn’t have to disconnect it, or more importantly, re-connect it in the morning! We can’t recommend #49 simply because of a large transformer as you turn in on the curbside, making it a tight fit for a large rig. There is a nice playground for the kids and everyone is very helpful. The park is very quiet!
Immaculate park! Sites in newer section were paved, wide and neat as a pin. Restrooms and showers were large and spotless, there is a continental breakfast offered on the weekend with quite a selection of goodies. The personnel were friendly and helpful. We don't normally stay at an "in town" park, but this was was exceptional.
Wonderful camp area with old growth trees, asphalt walking/biking trails, very clean bath/showers and tons of things to see. Our site was nestled in the trees and shrubs, couldn't put out the canopy, but we didn't need to! The shade is so dense that it is several degrees cooler here than in the sun. Campground was pretty full, but it was very peaceful and quiet. A host comes around everyday with firewood to purchase, how convenient! The only draw back to the sites is that they slope toward the front, making leveling a bit more difficult. But the view out the windows gives you the feel of being deep in the forest - just breathtaking. The beach is a bit of a walk down a paved path and the reward is a super nice beach with the shipwreck of the Peter Iredale on the shore. There is a lighthouse up the way and a lovely lake. Bikes are very popular around here and everything is very well maintained.
We were in the beach front sites, so there was no shade! It was a cool week, so the shade wasn't a factor. The ocean breezes, lovely beach, lighthouse and a walking tour of the old fort were especially nice. Lots of things to see and explore. Tons of children, and a perfect place for them! There are a couple of sea life museums and then around the fort area there is an artillery museum. Of course, a hike up to the old outpost is a must! Lovely hosts and beautiful camping. Bathrooms were not dirty so much as not well kept.
Lovely view of mountains and horses roaming in a field, no shade and very hot!! There are several smallish trees that will provide adequate shade in the future, but this is a new park and they are quite young. The hosts are quite pleasant and the bathrooms and showers were spotless and private. Each shower had a toilet and vanity, each room was large, private and locked. The pool was rather private, set between the buildings. It also was spotless. There is grass between the sites, some sites were a bit wider than others. Very pleasant experience.
Blackwell Island is a great place for family and pets! Easily accessible and right on the river. There are several water toys for rent and chairs line the river's swimming area. There is even a beach for our canine friends! The bathrooms and showers were immaculate. The spots are slightly close together as are most parks that accommodate big rigs, but fine. There were an abundance of geese and their droppings, making the area around the lake dicy, but the trees were lovely and the campground friendly. We would definitely go there again.
Riverbend park is outstanding! The owners are on site 24/7, ready to help with a smile. Upon arrival, you will be led to your site by one of the staff. The grass is very well maintained, the trees are lovely and the bathroom/showers are immaculate. We were parked facing the river, most of those sites are rather narrow, but the area between the front of your rig and the river is deep and shady. We totally enjoyed our stay and plan to return.
