This is a truly magnificent area and it's unfortunate (or fortunate, depending on your outlook) that Goulding's is the only place available to stay with a travel trailer. The pros: you're in the center of Monument Valley and you can drive to other sites and towns (Valley of the Gods; Gooseneck State Park, the town of Bluff, etc.). Cons: very close and somewhat uneven sites; rickety picnic benches; marginally friendly staff. Laundry facilities are expensive, but understandably so (water is a precious commodity). Wi-fi available, but we didn't use it.
This is a lovely Federal campground! Very clean with paved roads; spacious sites with a stone picnic table and fire pit. Shade trees throughout; we had site #33 (I think), which was a pull-through. We had plenty of room; perfect boondocking campground. You can ride your bike to Sunset Crater from the campground. The rate reflected didn't include any type of discount with the America the Beautiful Annual Pass (it wasn't accepted by the campground host); however, the Pass is good to enter Sunset Crater/Wupatki Monument.
A pleasant overnight stay on our way to Monument Valley from California. Easy in and out from the freeway; our site (#3) was level; the premises were clean. A huge dog run is available and is kept up. There is no grass; just large stones/gravel throughout. Friendly hostess; there is Wi-Fi available, but we didn't use it.
This is our first visit to Joshua Tree National Park and will definitely visit it again. We love boondocking, and this campground is perfect for it. We were in Site #20, which was a bit uneven, but surrounded by the wonderful Joshua Trees on either side. Friendly host and there is a nice trail that starts within the campground. The road approaching the campground is horrid--it desperately needs repaving. The rate we paid is a discount with our America the Beautiful Annual Pass.
Well-organized and clean RV park (escort service; all amenities, etc.). There was a car show the day we arrived, so it was very busy. Level pull-through site; I rated it a "9" because the sites are very close to each other.
This is a large State campground; we rated a "6"--sites are too close to each other. There is an attempt to grow grass at the sites, but it's mostly dirt. Our site (#B31) was fairly level; we had to unhook our rig because the site length was too short. We had a camper walking through our site for a short-cut to the bathrooms. Some sites have full hook-ups; ours only had water & electric. The nightly rate does not reflect the $8 charged by ReserveAmerica.
We camped @Madrone Campground (the other two are Huckleberry and Oak Flat). Our site (#71) was definitely not level, but nicely secluded from the other sites. We loved camping amongst the redwoods, but the "8" rating is due to the noise level from Highway 101 right next to our site. No bugs, but bicycling to Oak Flat, I noticed them right away due to its proximity to the Eel River. The nightly rate includes the $8 reservation fee via ReserveAmerica. P.S. The in and out direction signs can be confusing; we approached our site following the directions, but the site was configured backwards! We noticed some other sites were like that as well.
The price is $45/night and includes $1/dog (we had 2 dogs). A quiet and clean campground, level site w/gravel. The sites are somewhat private with foliage on either side (but not at the end of our rig--we had a back-in site). The firepit was rather strange; made from old truck split-rim bottom with a washing machine tub/ringer. We didn't use it, as we were only staying one night and arrived late.
Our first visit to the Grand Tetons/Yellowstone National Parks, so we were not that familiar with the area. Flagg Ranch Resort is north of the sites for the Grand Tetons, so if you're interested in spending most of your time there, I would recommend Jackson Lodge or Jenny Lake. The campground was quiet (off-season) and wooded. It needs a little TLC; 20 amp plug was upside-down and the picnic table was chipped and uncomfortable. Our site was relatively level and it felt safe, even though there was a bear sighting. We ate at Sheffields Restaurant one evening; nothing spectacular.
A very nice campground with a nice layout for all types of recreational vehicles. Level, paved roads and sites with picnic table; I'm not a big fan of bugs and there were many, as the Park is located near a reservoir. I've stayed at a couple of Oregon State Parks and I feel the state does a good job at maintaining them.
In my top "3" campgrounds, this place rocks (no pun intended)! A beautiful, eerie and yet serene campground, each site is clean and provides a view of the lava works. Super friendly rangers; take advantage of the various activities posted on boards throughout the campground. The hikes are fantastic and bicycling is perfect.
I love this campground! We've stayed here on several occasions when we're traveling towards Oregon and beyond. It's an oasis in Red Bluff. Clean and level sites, always a friendly host on-site. Fantastic price, as we make our reservations on-line as we have an America the Beautiful pass.
Off the I-5 and easy to locate, this campground is clean and well managed. Very friendly hostess for check-in, our site was level and paved. Great Wi-Fi connection; we didn't use the available cable connection. I would give them a "10" except you're very close to your next-door neighbor. Highly recommended.
Based on prior reviews of this campsite, we stayed 2 nights for an annual Irish Wolfhound get-together in Monterey. Use Gate 6 when you enter the Fairgrounds. The entire area is paved and the host was very friendly. We were originally given site 18, but with our 28', it was a bit tricky to park (there's a tree directly in front of the site). We took site 17 instead, but be aware that hookups are shared and I believe the odd numbers need extensions on sewer, water and electric. There's horse stables and a golf course on either side; very clean and peaceful. There is an airport nearby, but the planes didn't bother us. I thank everyone for being good canine citizens; there was no dog waste to be seen. I will definitely stay here again!
